City appeals federal airport finding

Chicot Memorial

The City of Greenville is appealing a Department of Transportation finding that the airport does not qualify for a subsidy. Airports must average at least ten passengers per day to qualify for a subsidy from a federal Essential Air Service program. The Department of Transportation recently found that the Mid-Delta Regional Airport is averaging 9.3 passengers per day. The city is seeking a waiver, in anticipation of the average daily passenger rate rising above ten, once a new airline has replaced Silver Airways.
