Delta Air Lines is adding more flights on the routes it flies from Albany, Brunswick, Columbus and Valdosta, Ga. to its Atlanta hub.

Atlanta-based Delta said each of those routes will get an additional daily flight on a Delta Connection regional carrier starting next spring. That will increase Delta's flight capacity in those markets by 35 percent.

During peak periods, Albany, Brunswick and Valdosta will each have four daily round-trips to Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport and Columbus will have five daily round-trips.

The flight schedule additions will take effect May 22, 2020 for Brunswick and June 8, 2020 for Albany, Columbus and Valdosta.

Delta senior vice president of network planning Joe Esposito said in a written statement that the additions will create more connections for those communities to flights from Atlanta to cities around the world.

Gov. Brian Kemp in a written statement in Delta's press release said the new flights "will open new doors for economic growth in every corner of our state."

Delta Connection carriers SkyWest and Endeavor Air will operate the flights.
