Aberdeen flyers to get jet service Nov. 1
Associated Press – October 22, 2010 5:25 AM ET
ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) – Aberdeen Regional Airport is adding jet service for some of its commercial passengers.
Beginning Nov. 1, people flying Delta Airlines into Aberdeen from Minneapolis on the last flight of the day, and those taking off first thing in the morning, will be riding on a 50-seat Canadair regional jet.
The Aberdeen American News reports that passengers on the other two daily flights will continue to fly in a Saab 340 propeller plane.
Mayor Mike Levsen says the arrival of jet service is something the city has worked at for a long time.
Levsen says it will help make a good impression on first-time visitors and people thinking of relocating to Aberdeen for personal or business reasons.
City officials had spent a lot of time trying to persuade Northwest Airlines to provide jet service. Delta and Northwest have since merged.
