SD Air Travelers Opt To Drive After Flight Trouble

April 9, 2014, 3:48 PM

PIERRE, SD -

Air travelers to and from South Dakota's small towns are growing weary of inconsistent flights. And many are giving up on regional airports all together.

The airport manager for Pierre Regional Airport says it was doing well last year. Mike Isaacs says business has dropped since because of cancellations.

Isaacs and city officials have received a lot of complaints. Doctors have missed surgeries and people have missed weddings.

Cancellation rates at the Pierre airport have soared since August and sales have fallen.

Recent Federal Aviation Administration rules require co-pilots to log 1,500 flight hours before they can work for commercial airlines. They previously needed 250 hours.

Great Lakes Airlines was hit hard by the changes. Now some travelers in Pierre and Watertown are opting to drive and use larger airports.
