After the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, numerous airlines cut or entirely removed all their flights to Mobile, Alabama’s regional airport, but now it seems that the airlines are coming back.
With announcements from Continental, American Eagle, US Airways, and Delta, there will now be 22 daily flights leaving the Gulf coast city.
Most airlines said there had been solid demand for the flights, pointing out that even after the flight reductions due to Katrina, the airport still saw a 7 per cent increase in passenger volume.
Flights will begin going back into service in November and some others will restart in December.
The news comes as the other major airports affected by the storm, Baton Rouge and New Orleans, also announced that airlines would be resuming and adding flights to the two cities.
