Only one other carrier serving John Wayne offers nonstop service to the New York area, Wedge said. Continental Airlines flies to Newark Liberty International Airport from JWA. The new connection will replace Delta's nonstop flight from JWA to Detroit, Wedge said.
The first JFK-bound Delta flight is scheduled to depart John Wayne at 1:45 p.m. (PST) Sept. 7 and reach JFK at 10:15 p.m. (EST) that evening, Wedge said. The first inbound flight from JFK is scheduled to land at around noon local time.
