As of December 14th, passengers using the Springfield-Branson National Airport will no longer have the option of flying to Minneapolis. KSMU’s Chasity Mayes reports.
The service on Delta Airlines was initially dropped for six weeks late last summer, but was brought back due to an increase in sales this fall.
Kent Boyd, an airport spokesperson says that many factors affected the decision to cut the service.
This isn’t the only change that locals who fly have seen since the merger between Delta and Northwest Airlines took place. Other destinations that have been dropped since that time include Cincinnati and Detroit.
Officials for the airport say that there has been a significant drop in passengers nationally since the recession, which they believe played a significant role in the reduction of services. However, they do say that the national drop should lead to a much smoother holiday season for those traveling.
