Vienna-to-Chicago flights could be days away

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – Approval for direct flights to Chicago from the Youngstown Warren Regional Airport could be just days away.

Airport Director Dan Dickten told First News he sent a letter to the U.S. Department of Transportation reiterating the need for the daily service.

A decision from the federal agency could be just days away.

A certification request for the operator, Aerodynamics Incorporated, was put on hold last year after a senior management official was involved in a fraud case. That person is no longer with the company.

Dickten said he is optimistic the DOT will approve the certification so flights can start as early as October. He also said that if all goes as planned, Seaport Airlines, which is operated by ADI, would provide the flights.
