More Flights Possible At Local Airport

A popular flight could soon be back in Tyler.

Tyler Pounds Regional Airport is working to offer a flight to Austin. Tuesday, the Tyler Chamber of Commerce held a meeting with representatives from American Eagle and Sky West airlines. The airlines are in talks to begin flights from Tyler to Austin, Eastern destinations and to Love Field in Dallas.                                                                              

Officials said it's still early, but they hope to make an announcement soon.

"Right now its just still up in the air," said Susan Cloud, Station Manager for Sky West Airline, "but I know the people of Tyler certainly want that service and we would be glad to provide that for them if it is at all possible."

The target date for service to begin to Austin is early spring or summer of next year.
