TUPELO, Miss. (AP) – Four airlines have submitted offers to the U.S. Department of Transportation to provide subsidized air service to Tupelo.

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reports that the offers were made after Silver Airways announced that it plans to end its two-year-run. Silver must provide service at least until Aug. 7 or until a substitute service is selected.

The airlines submitting bids are: Aerodynamics Inc., Air Choice One, SeaPort Airlines and Sun Air. The companies are offering a variety of flights including Tupelo to Atlanta and Tupelo to Nashville flights.

Air Choice One and SeaPort Airlines have bid for the service before. Two years ago both proposed service in Tupelo. However, Silver Airways won the bid after Delta Air Lines announced it was leaving the Tupelo market.
