Airport ponders two carriers

HATTIESBURG, Miss. -- The Hattiesburg-Laurel Regional Airport is expected to make a decision within a month on a replacement carrier to take over for Delta Air Lines. Airport Director Thomas Heanue said the airport is considering bids submitted to the U.S. Department of Transportation by Silver Airways and Air Choice One Airlines. Delta notified the transportation department last July that it intended to drop 24 routes in smaller markets across the nation, including Hattiesburg. (Source: Hattiesburg American, 04/12/12)
