Plans approved for daily flights between Youngstown and Chicago

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The Department of Transportation approved plans for daily flights from the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport to Chicago.

The Department of Transportation determined that Aerodynamics Incorporated is “fit, willing, and able” to offer the daily round-trip flights, according to a Certificate of Public Convenience and Necessity for Interstate Air Transportation issued Thursday. The certificate gives Aerodynamics Inc. the ability to begin commercial flights.

Dan Dickten, director of aviation at the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport, said he is not sure just when the Chicago flights will begin. A press conference will be held at a later date with more details, he said.

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