TUPELO, Miss. (AP) – Silver Airways has pushed back the start date of ticket sales for service out of the Tupelo Regional Airport.

Airport executive director Josh Abramson tells WTVA TV that the airline was scheduled to begin sales Wednesday, but has pushed the start back to the middle of August.

He says the airline remains on course to begin air service on Oct. 1.

Silver Airways will provide flights from Tupelo to Atlanta and has a working agreement for seamless transitions to Delta Airlines.

The air carrier was awarded the contract through the Essential Air Service program.
