Delta will add one more roundtrip to Detroit from Greater Binghamton Airport starting March 1.
Another Delta flight will be welcome addition to the airline-starved travelers hoping to catch flights from the local airport.
The addition will increase the number of daily flights to and from the Town of Maine airfield to six —three arrivals and three departures.
United abandoned its Binghamton-to-Newark route in late November, and American is scheduled to end its daily service — two roundtrip flights — to Philadelphia on Feb. 15.
