DELTA AIR LINES RECEIVES PERMANENT DETROIT-LONDON AUTHORITY

 DELTA AIR LINES RECEIVES PERMANENT DETROIT-LONDON AUTHORITY
 ATLANTA, April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The Department of Transportation today granted final approval of the transfer of the Detroit-London route to Delta Air Lines (NYSE: DAL).
 Today's action makes final the Department of Transportation's March 31 show-cause order tentatively approving transfer of the route to Delta. As the DOT said in the earlier order, the department generally approves market-based route transfers unless they conflict with important international aviation policy objectives or are otherwise inconsistent with the public interest.
 The DOT said that Delta will make effective use of the route and that its planned schedules are equal or superior to those operated by Pan American. It also found that the transfer would have no adverse effects on competition.
 Delta said it is extremely pleased with the DOT decision and remained committed to providing the best of service to the traveling public on this Cleveland-Detroit-London route. Delta reported excellent public response to this service, which it has operated on a temporary authority basis since December 1991 with recent load factors over 60 percent.
