Two airlines vying for Port City service
Published: June 11,2010
GREENVILLE — Two airlines have applied for a federal subsidy to provide commercial air service to Mid-Delta Regional Airport in Greenville.
The applications were filed by Mesaba Airlines, a subsidiary of Delta Air Lines, and Alaska-based Seaport Airlines.
Northwest Airlink, operated by Mesaba Airlines, currently serves the airport.
The Essential Air Service subsidy helps keep commercial air service in communities at least 70 miles from larger hub airports.
Airport director Lane Rodgers tells WABG-TV that he and Mayor Heather Hudson will review the proposals and make a recommendation to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
The USDOT will have the final say.
