ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A special deal with Delta Airlines will allow some passengers to fly to Atlanta for about the same cost as driving there.

Right now, Delta Airlines is offering a weekly fare special of $59 one way to Atlanta.

Airport officials say that makes a round trip ticket just $132 with taxes and airport fees. You have to fly out this Saturday and fly back Monday or Tuesday but the airport hopes if people take advantage of the deal more deals may come Albany's way. 

"They tend to do other city pairs, but I was able to talk with Delta last week, and I said 'I notice some other Georgia cities are being included in these weekly specials, and we haven't been included for a while, so how about throwing some of those our way?' So they were able to include us this week," says Yvette Aehle,  Southwest Regional Airport Director.

The offer is only available by booking online. You can get alerts for special fairs like this one by signing up for the weekly fare special on Delta's website.
