Pierre Air Service Proposals Due Friday
October 14, 2011, 6:35 AM
PIERRE, SD -
The deadline has arrived for air carriers to submit proposals for a flight connecting South Dakota's capital city with Minneapolis.
Delta Airlines plans to cut its Pierre-Minneapolis route Nov. 20 because of a drop in passengers. The federal Department of Transportation last month approved the move. The city has appealed that decision, saying the flight is important to businesses and residents, as well as state government.
Pierre airport manager Mike Isaacs says the federal DOT until Friday was accepting proposals for subsidized Essential Air Service routes in South Dakota. The Pierre-Minneapolis route does not receive EAS money, but Isaacs says the route could be included in proposals that airlines make for other cities such as Aberdeen.
