Air Choice One Proposes Air Service to Tupelo, MS
St. Louis, MO: September 20, 2017 – Air Choice One, a St. Louis based airline, announced that the carrier has submitted a proposal to the U.S. Department of Transportation to offer service in Tupelo, Mississippi.
Air Choice One has submitted the airline’s proposal to the government under the Essential Air Service Program which provides communities throughout the United States with air service to connect smaller cities to the national air transportation network. With their continued growth, Air Choice One is looking to offer Tupelo a connection to Dallas, Atlanta and Nashville.
“We are excited for the opportunity to not only bring our service to the Tupelo community, the birthplace of the one and only Elvis Presley, but to create a solution to what’s currently lacking in the market,” said Shane Storz, CEO of Air Choice One. “Our proposal will give the best access to the national transportation system for the community and at reasonable prices with optimal convenience. We know that having access to a dedicated air carrier is critical to having scheduled airline service in the future. We are committed to delivering these same dramatic increases and sustaining these numbers over time in Tupelo.” Air Choice One has proven that their strategy works in similar communities, including Jonesboro, Arkansas, Jackson, Tennessee , and Ironwood, Michigan.
The Air Choice One proposal includes weekday and weekend service of 30 round trips per week, utilizing a Beechcraft 1900. The Beechcraft features lots of leg room, expanded storage/luggage capacity and an air-conditioned/heated cabin for passenger comfort.
