City wins airport appeal

The City of Greenville has won an appeal of an airport ruling. The US Department of Transportation has upheld city’s appeal of an earlier ruling that found that the Mid-Delta Regional Airport is not eligible for a federal subsidy because it doesn’t average ten passengers per day. The successful appeal clears the way for Silver Airways to be replaced by another airline. The Department of Transportation is expected to decide in October whether Silver can be replaced by Oregon-based SeaPort Airlines, which would offer flights from Greenville to Memphis. City officials recently chose SeaPort from among three bidders that sought to replace Silver Airways.
