New Airline Plans Flights From Gregg County

A new airline could soon be offering East Texans more travel options, if Gregg County commissioners approve the move. "Small Community Airlines", based out of Dallas Love Field, will propose flight service at Monday's commissioners court meeting. The airline hopes to start with 14 weekly flights to Dallas and Austin from Gregg County Regional Airport.

"If we can provide flights out of Gregg County going to Austin and Love Field, which are not now available at either airport, it will compliment both communities it will compliment the region and certainly will probably help economic development all the way around" said Gregg County Judge Bill Stoudt.

The airline hopes to be ready to fly from Gregg County Regional within the next two months.
