Cincinnati (AP) -- While Delta Air Lines and Northwest Airlines forge ahead with plans to merge, Delta subsidiary Comair is moving forward with confidence that it will remain an integral part of Delta's network of regional fliers.

Comair says it is making steady progress in cutting 35 million dollars in costs this year as part of Delta's overall cost-cutting in response to high fuel prices.

The company recently announced that it won't have to cut back as much as expected on aircraft and flights.

The Erlanger, Kentucky-based airline also is adding income by providing contract work in ground handling and maintenance for other airlines.

Comair flights are split between its Cincinnati hub and the Northeast.
