Delta pilots performed test flights at the Juneau International Airport on Wednesday morning, preparing for the company’s summertime expansion to Juneau starting May 29. Delta will serve Juneau seasonally, flying in and out of the capital city until the end of August, company spokesman Anthony Black said.
Because Delta hasn’t flown in or out of Juneau in 19 years, airport deputy manager Marc Cheatham said, pilots needed to “make sure they get the lay of the land” before service starts again.
