Silver Airways Asked to Reduce Flights

TUPELO, Miss. (AP) – The mayors of two Mississippi cities are asking Silver Airways to reduce its flight schedule at their airports.

The move, they say, is to get more commercial passengers flying out of the Tupelo and Greenville airports and give more rest to pilots between flights.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports (http://bit.ly/1evovJr) that Tupelo Mayor Jason Shelton and Greenville Mayor John Cox have written letters to Silver requesting a reduction in flights.

The mayors propose keeping the overnight flight pairing that starts in Greenville early in the morning and returns to Greenville late in the evening.

The new schedule would operate only one midday round-trip flight on an Atlanta-Tupelo-Greenville-Tupelo-Atlanta routing. Service would be twice a day on that schedule Monday-Friday, with one trip on that routing each Sunday and Monday.
