It’s been a dozen years since there was daily airline service from the Youngstown-Warren regional airport, but that may be close to changing. WKSU’s Tim Rudell reports.

The airport, in Vienna, east of Warren has only had seasonal, vacation-based service since 2003.  A year and a half ago specialty air carrier Aerodynamics, Incorporated asked the U.S. Department of Transportation for permission to offer daily passenger service to and from Chicago. The company has made changes to meet regulators requirements including in its ownership in order to get the go-ahead.  

Decision expected
Airport Director of Aviaton Dan Dickten says he thinks that’s on the way. “We’re expecting something to come out of the Transportation Department here any day.  What we’re hoping to see would be the approval of that new ownership; the fitness approval for this combined airline; and if we’re really lucky, we’ll also get the certification for the route.”

The airport itself has made more than $5 million in improvements in recent years.

Another "Ready Air" scam? Look it up.

No it's true. Another airline purchased ADI and the new ownership approval is expected very soon. That will allow the new airline to pass the DOT fitness test and get the route certification. Will be a wonderful opportunity for the Mahoning Valley communities.
