Only Two Proposals For Greenville Air Service


GREENVILLE, MS (Ben Caxton) – Proposals have been received for subsidized air service for Greenville’s Mid-Delta Airport, and this time around the choices have narrowed significantly. Only two carriers bid on service, the current provider, San Franciso-based Boutique Air, and Multi-Aero, Inc. otherwise known as Air Choice One out of the St. Louis Area. Two years ago four different carriers were interested in serving the local airfield. Boutique Air’s contract ends on September 30. According to documents filed with the Federal Aviation Administration, both airlines propose services costing around three and a half million dollars. Air Choice One wants the federal government to pick up $2.8M of that cost, Boutique $2.7M. Currently Boutique offers service to Nashville and Dallas and they propose the possibility of additional flights to Muscle Shoals, Alabama and Atlanta. Air Choice One’s proposal would switch service to flights to Memphis and New Orleans. Boutique has been serving Greenville since 2015 when SeaPort Airlines discontinued service.
