TUPELO — Officials at Tupelo Regional Airport expect to know by November who will take over air service.

Airport executive director Josh Abramson tells WTVA-TV two companies have submitted bids thus far.

Abramson says Seaport Airlines presented a bid that would allow 25 weekly flights to Memphis and 18 weekly flights to Nashville.

Another company, Air Choice One, offered a plan that will provide 52 weekly flights to Memphis only.

Abramson says both carriers would use smaller passenger aircraft — able to seat nine.
