Two airlines suspend direct LR flights until spring ’17

Seasonal airline service is becoming as much of a reality for travelers as airport security lines. As ultra-low-cost carriers search for niches not served by the four major airlines, the likelihood of temporary service increases for small and midsize airports, Little Rock Municipal Airport Commission members were told Tuesday. According to Arkansas Online, the commission gathered for a fourth year to hear from industry representatives on the work it takes to add and maintain service from airlines. Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport/Adams Field will lose direct service to Destin, Fla., through GLO Airlines and and Los Angeles through Allegiant Air until spring and summer of 2017. Neither move is unusual, airport Executive Director Ron Mathieu said after the meeting with commissioners.
