Aerodynamics responds to complaint on daily air service at YNG


VIENNA, Ohio (WKBN) – The airline trying to bring daily flights back to the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport is fighting back.

A competing airline told the U.S. Department of Transportation two weeks ago that Aerodynamics, Inc. (ADI) failed to pay back $400,000. Aerodynamics responded to the allegations, saying that it was paying that bill, and then some.

It also accused the competitor of trying to retaliate over an unrelated lawsuit.

The Department of Transportation has closed public comments and will now decide if it will grant ADI daily flights from Vienna to Chicago

The Department of Transportation previously recommended approval for Aerodynamics to operate daily flight service through SeaPort Airlines between the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport and Chicago O’Hare International Airport. There was a 14-day period in which the public could offer input to the Department of Transportation on the new service, followed by a two-week response period.

A decision is expected soon.

The Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport has been without daily commercial service since 2002.
