MOSINEE, Wis. (WSAU) – Delta Airlines has changed over to all jet service at Central Wisconsin Airport.
Delta is eliminating their Saab 340 propeller aircraft from their fleet. They'll be replaced with newer Canadair passenger jets. The newer planes have a 50 passenger capacity as opposed to the older 38 passenger model.
Airport manager Tony Yaron says the move means an average 6 percent increase in passenger capacity at CWA, and means faster travel to Minneapolis and Detroit. He also says if these new flights sell out that Delta is considering adding a 7th flight in and out of the airport daily.
United and American Eagle already serve CWA with jet service to their destinations.
