Silver Airways flies in as new carrier


MOSELLE, MS (WDAM) -With Delta Air Lines flying out, and Silver Airways coming into the Hattiesburg-Laurel Regional Airport as the new carrier means some major changes are on the way.   After nearly a year of consideration Silver Airways will step in as the new carrier in place of Delta Air Lines. Hattiesburg-Laurel Airport Executive Director, Thomas Heanue, expects that those who live for the sky will be greatly pleased by Delta's replacement. 

 "I think it's probably the best that you're going to see and the best that you're going to get.  It's a carrier that wants to be here," Said Heanue.  It's not a cheap alternative though.  

"It's been pricey.  One of the things that makes the price higher than the normal subsidy is that Silver Airways is coming here out of blind faith," said Heanue.   


 He predicts that Silver Airways will be operating at the airport by August 2012.
