VIENNA, Ohio (WYTV) – Representatives of Aerodynamics Inc. will officially announce that daily flights between Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport and Chicago will be launched in May at a press conference on March 24.
In just a couple of months, the 50-seat regional jet will be flying into Chicago O’Hare.
Dan Dickten, Director of Aviation for Youngstown-Warren Regional, says this will create growth for the airport. The Valley has been without daily airline service for 14 years.
Dickten believes this will also save people long trips to other airports in the region.
“This is going to allow people to connect to the rest of the world starting from their own airports instead of having to drive to Pittsburgh, Cleveland or Akron-Canton,” he said.
Dickten hopes this will show other airlines how many people want to fly out of Youngstown. He says then they might be interested in bringing in flights and creating growth for the airport.
