Island Air bid for Nebraska route OK'd
GRAND ISLAND, Neb. — The Hall County Airport Authority has approved Island Air's bid for flights from Grand Island to Kansas City.
Island Air's bid calls for two flights a day to Kansas City International Airport on a 37-seat aircraft. Great Lakes Airlines, which also bid, had proposed three flights a day on a 19-seater.
The airport authority has been seeking a new air carrier since Mesa Airlines filed a notice of termination with the Department of Transportation earlier this year.
The board's resolution will be sent to the mayor and city council. The council must approve the choice before it is forwarded to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
