A lease agreement for Delta Airlines to set up shop at the Ketchikan International Airport is in front of the Ketchikan Gateway Borough Assembly on Monday.
Delta will start offering daily seasonal service between Ketchikan and Seattle on May 15th. The lease agreement provides space for basic needs, such as offices, ticketing and baggage handling. That space is on the baggage-claim side of the building, on the first floor.
According to borough information, the five-year lease would cost Delta $2,227 per month, or a little more than $26,000 a year. Additional fees will be charged for the number of landings, and use of the baggage carousel.
Delta will share the terminal with Alaska Airlines, which for many years has been the only airline providing service to Ketchikan. Delta started offering service in Juneau last year, and is expanding that to other Southeast communities.
Ketchikan’s daily Delta service will run through the summer season, ending in early September.
Also Monday, the Assembly as an executive session planned to discuss the ongoing education funding lawsuit.
The meeting starts at 5:30 p.m. in Borough Assembly chambers at the White Cliff building. Public comment will be heard at the start of the meeting.
