The Lincoln Airport is not getting new airline service — at least not yet — but it is getting added capacity from its existing carriers.
The airport announced Friday that United Airlines has already started using a larger 76-seat regional jet on some flights to Denver this month, and the airline plans to add another daily flight to Denver using the larger plane in July. The new flight will leave Lincoln daily at around 1 p.m., while an additional flight from Denver to Lincoln will arrive late at night.
In addition, airport officials said Delta Air Lines will continue using 76-seat planes on its daily Lincoln-to-Atlanta flight throughout the summer. In the past, Delta has downsized to a smaller plane on the route during the summer.
