St. Louis, MO: February 28, 2018 – As a result of increased passenger demand, Air Choice One, a St. Louis based regional airline, has updated its schedule of flights from Ft. Dodge to St. Louis.

We look forward to continuing our service to the Fort Dodge community, and keeping open communication so we can respond in a way that benefits them”

The changed flight will start going to St. Louis March 1st, 2018. Flights will still continue to Minneapolis and Fort Dodge’s other destinations.
