fast plane to china.

beijing%20zoo%20sign.jpg

you probably didn’t know this but atlanta has the nation’s largest and busiest airport without direct access to china. hometown airline delta is attempting to change that having entered a bid for new routes that have opened up to beijing and shanghai (see businessweek here.)

securing these routes is actually a very important thing for our city and it’s emergence as a center of global commerce; and frankly having to get of a plane in o’hare having just flown from shanghai and change planes to come here is a major pain in the ass.

you can help; believe it or not, signs of support from the public weigh in quite a bit in determining who gets awarded these routes.

delta has set up a web site celled next gateway to china where there is a petition you can sign.

give it some thought.
