Issues at Aberdeen Airport Concern Officials

ABERDEEN – Aberdeen Airport Board member Steve Kaiser says he’s worried recent canceled flights might give the impression the city has a “two-bit airport.”

Several flights were canceled earlier this week because a de-icing truck broke down. Another truck had to be brought from Omaha, Neb., resulting in days of delays. The American News reports City Transportation Director Mike Wilson estimates several hundred travelers were affected before normal operations resumed Wednesday.

Wilson says Delta officials will be working on a plan in case a similar scenario occurs.

Northern State University President Jim Smith says the city also needs more than one airline with two jet flights a day. Wilson says more seats are available on those two flights than there were on the three turboprop flights the city used to have.
