Fewer flights in and out of East Texas

GREGG COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - American Eagle announced Monday they will be cutting flights to East Texas area airports.

One of those airports affected includes the East Texas Regional Airport in Gregg County.
Officials there say the changes are happening to save fuel at numerous airports.

"This is a system wide change in all of their hub operations in an effort to try and save fuel costs, and these are temporary changes that will last until April, and then we will go back to full service during the week , keeping the additional Saturday flight,"says Gregg County Judge Bill Stoudt.

Other airports expected to see changes include Tyler Pounds and Texarkana Regional Airports.
