Great Lakes Airlines will suspend service to two more North Dakota locations by the end of the month.
The Wyoming-based company says it is suspending service to the Dickinson and Williston airports. It pulled out of Devils Lake and Jamestown at the end of January.
Great Lakes has said it is pulling out of several regional airports because of problems retaining pilots. The company has cited new federal rules that require co-pilots to log 1,500 flight hours before they can work for commercial airlines. They previously required 250 hours.
The new regulations have also affected Great Lakes flights in Pierre, S.D. The shortage of pilots caused about 17 percent of flights to be cancelled in February in Pierre.
