TUPELO — The U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) has directed Mesaba Airlines to continue air service in Tupelo through at least April 14, or until replacement service begins.

It is the fourth time since December that the USDOT has said it needed more time to decide how many flights Tupelo Regional Airport will have.

Tupelo Mayor Jack Reed Jr. tells the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal that he’d rather have a good decision made rather than a bad one made hastily.

Mesaba is a subsidiary of Delta Air Lines.

Last July, Mesaba notified USDOT of its intent to suspend service because it couldn’t provide service without a federal subsidy.

Mesaba currently provides one daily flight to Memphis and one to Atlanta.
