GREENVILLE — Silver Airways officials say they can start providing air service in August to Greenville Mid-Delta Regional Airport if the government approves.
Silver Airways’ proposal is pending before the U.S. Department of Transportation.
The city of Greenville announced earlier this month that it was supporting Silver Airways for the contract with the USDOT’s Essential Air Service program.
Last July, Delta Air Lines said it could no longer serve 24 small airports across the country. Included on the list were Tupelo, Greenville and Hattiesburg. Delta gets EAS subsidies to fly in those cities.
The USDOT ordered Delta to continue serving those cities until a substitute carrier could be found.
Silver Airways was formerly known as Gulfstream International.
