An updated version of this article has been posted. In the update, Delta provides more details on its decision to add service to Atlanta while reducing flights to Memphis.

Departure times

In addition to changes in flight offerings, Delta will adjust its departure times beginning in Sept. 5.

Sunday through Friday

Memphis: 6:30 a.m.

Atlanta: 11:35 a.m. and 5:05 p.m.


Atlanta: 7 a.m. and 2 p.m. 

COLUMBIA — Beginning Sept. 5, Delta Air Lines Inc. will offer a second daily flight to Atlanta from the Columbia Regional Airport — just six months after it introduced the destination in March.

The change will not alter the number of flights the Atlanta-based airline offers from Columbia, however. Only one flight to Memphis will depart from the airport at 6:30 a.m. Sunday through Friday. There will be no flights to Memphis on Saturdays.

Currently, the airline makes two daily flights to Memphis and one to Atlanta. According a news release, the modification to its flight schedule comes in response to "increased demand" for flights to Atlanta.

The release did not state whether Delta plans to offer more travel options in the future. A previous Missourian report indicates that flights to Memphis have been popular among travelers since they began in 2008.
