Pine Belt airport still looking for replacement carrier
Published: December 27,2011
HATTIESBURG — It is still a wait-and-see situation at the Hattiesburg-Laurel Regional Airport when it comes to which commercial carrier will provide service to local residents.
For the past three years, Delta Airlines has provided commercial air service at Hattiesburg-Laurel. In July, the airline announced it was discontinuing service to 24 of its smaller markets, including the Jones County airport.
Under federal guidelines, Delta was required to provide service at least 90 days after its announcement.
And although the airline agreed to stay a little longer so a replacement could be found, officials tells the Hattiesburg American there is no word on how much longer that will be.
Hattiesburg-Laurel currently runs two departing flights daily, connecting to Memphis.
