Tupelo chooses Delta/Mesaba
Published: December 22,2009
The AP reports that Tupelo Mayor Jack Reed Jr. is backing a bid by Delta/Mesaba to provide federally subsidized air service in the city. Reed told the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal he wrote a letter supporting Delta to the U.S. Department of Transportation, which will award the subsidy.
According to the AP, SeaPort Airlines, which met with airport officials earlier this month, proposed four daily flights to Memphis and three to Atlanta. Under that plan, passengers would have to pay for separate tickets to their next destination through a major airline.
Tupelo currently has one daily flight to Memphis and Atlanta. Mesaba proposed two daily departures from Tupelo to Memphis and one to Atlanta.
