Jet service returning to Tupelo Regional Airport

TUPELO — Commercial passenger jet service will be coming back to Tupelo Regional Airport in September, a move precipitated by the fact that Delta Air Lines is phasing out its Saab 340 turboprop fleet.
The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports the current 15-flights-per-week schedule isn’t likely to change much, since Delta is being paid a federal subsidy to provide service between Tupelo and Memphis through July 2012.
The Saabs seat a maximum of 34 passengers, while the jets can seat 50 or more.
