Delta Offers Service to Four Ohio Airports

With eight commercial airports throughout the state, Delta Air Lines tops the favorite airline rankings in Ohio with an interest over time of 85. Known for their exceptional customer service and community spirit, Delta consistently ranks as the best U.S. airline for business travelers. But unlike Delta’s home base of Georgia, legal wagering is available here via Ohio betting apps.

In Ohio, Delta flies out of four Ohio airports: Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport, Cleveland Hopkins International Airport, John Glenn Columbus International Airport and Dayton International Airport.

American Airlines (61) comes in a distant second to Delta and flies out of six airports in the Buckeye State: Akron-Canton Airport, Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International, Cleveland Hopkins International, John Glenn Columbus International, Dayton International and Toledo Express Airport.

Spirit Airlines (59) comes in a close third and only has two Ohio airports where they fly out of: Cleveland Hopkins and John Glenn Columbus. In related news, Spirit and JetBlue ended their proposed $3.8 billion merger after a court ruling on March 4.

Similar to Spirit, Southwest Airlines (33) also flies out of two Ohio airports: Cleveland Hopkins and John Glenn Columbus. United Airlines (27) rounded out the top five and runs out of three Ohio airports: Cleveland Hopkins, John Glenn Columbus, and Dayton International.
