Delta Air Lines (Atlanta) will expand its winter Atlanta non-stop service to Montrose/Telluride from Saturday only to daily service beginning December 18, 2010. The Atlanta to Montrose/Telluride daily non-stop service will run until April 3, 2011. Service will be provided on a 76-seat Delta Connection CRJ900 (64 Coach and 12 First Class Seats) and on a 142- seat MD-90-30 aircraft.
