Joe's Viewpoint: American Eagle Airline

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - The subject of today's viewpoint is the new airline service from American Eagle now available from the Hattiesburg-Laurel Regional Airport to Meridian and Dallas.

This is a good thing for the Pine Belt.

The service is a joint venture between the Cities of Hattiesburg, Laurel and Meridian and offers two flights per week day and one on Saturdays and Sundays.

The airline will offer pricing competitive with American out of Jackson and free parking. Communities that offer airline service like this have a competitive edge, so let's work to support it.
