New jet service to start at Columbia Airport

Delta Airlines' new jet-only service at Columbia Regional Airport starts Tuesday.

Delta said increased demand prompted them to add regional jets on all of its three daily flights roundtrip flights from Columbia.

Those flights will continue to connect through Memphis.

The Columbia Airport will be a topic of Monday night TMs Columbia City Council meeting to discuss how to attract new airlines to the city.

A couple ideas are waiving rent for counter space and landing fees.
