Delta Air Lines can keep flying from Dallas Love Field–at least through the end of the year. Recently, the City of Dallas informed Delta it had to two weeks to exit the airport. But for now, Delta will continue operating its five daily flights to and from Atlanta after Southwest Airlines agreed to let Delta use one of its gates until January 6.
United Airlines will also allow Delta to use ticket gates and other operational space until the end of the year. After these dates, Delta will have to negotiate a more permanent deal with Southwest, United, or Virgin America to lease a slot to continue flying to Atlanta.
Delta also issued a statement announcing the ongoing negotiations: “Delta Air Lines has secured the right to continue to operate service at Dallas Love Field through the end of the year, and continues to work with all parties involved toward a permanent solution to allow for long-term service.”
