MACON, Ga. — Authorities say a new airline will begin providing passenger flights from Macon to Atlanta later this year.
Doug Faour, manager of Macon Downtown Airport and Middle Georgia Regional Airport, says that Sun Air International plans to begin service from Macon to Atlanta on Dec. 1. He said GeorgiaSkies will continue the route until Sun Air International begins service.
He discussed the timeline during a Tuesday meeting of Macon’s public properties committee.
The Telegraph reports (http://bit.ly/NQsRTr) that Sun Air International is the winning bidder to provide subsidized flights to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport under a two-year contract. The company will get nearly $1.95 million per year through the federal Essential Air Service program. That program funds passenger flights from smaller cities to major hubs.
