The Quad City International Airport is getting a big boost in service using bigger aircraft. The airport Tuesday released the following information on Delta providing flights using Airbus aircraft.

For the first time in history, Delta Air Lines will provide mainline service to the Quad City International Airport. Airport officials were informed late last week that Delta will use an A-319 Airbus once per day, for one departure and one arrival. The aircraft seats 126 passengers- twelve in first class, and 114 in coach. Flights will be to/from Atlanta, and will depart the Quad Cities at 6:00 a.m., arriving in Atlanta at 8:51 a.m. The evening flight will depart Atlanta at 9:21 p.m., and arrive in Moline/Quad Cities at 10:17 p.m. These flight times are already in the current schedule, along with two other daily arrivals and departures offered between Moline and Atlanta by Delta.

Bruce Carter, Director of Aviation, says "We are very excited that Delta is inaugurating service with a mainline aircraft. This opens up more opportunities for operating larger aircraft from the Quad City International Airport. We have already made the investment in special ground handling equipment to support the A-319 operations," Carter adds. "We know our leisure and corporate travelers, in particular, who use these flights for domestic and international connections through the Atlanta hub, will enjoy and appreciate the upgraded aircraft."

The flights utilizing the A-319 will begin June 10, 2013. Delta currently serves the Quad Cities with three popular hub, or connecting cities: Atlanta, Detroit, and Minneapolis-St. Paul.
