GREENVILLE -- An airline serving a Mississippi Delta airport is adding service to Atlanta while dropping service to Nashville, Tennessee.
The Delta Democrat-Times reports that Boutique Air will begin serving Atlanta on April 1, instead of flying to Nashville. The airline will continue serving Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport in Texas.
Mid Delta Regional Airport Director Sam Washington, says travelers have been asking for access to Atlanta, which has more flight connections than Nashville.
Boutique Air will offer two round trips daily to Dallas and one round trip daily to Atlanta. Fares start at $89 to Dallas and $99 to Atlanta, flying aboard either single-engine or twin-engine turboprop planes.
The federal government's Essential Air Service program is spending nearly $2.8 million this year to subsidize service to Greenville by San Francisco-based Boutique Air.
