Air Choice Once Moves Fort Dodge Flights to St. Louis

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. Starting March 1, 2018, an additional flight to St. Louis will be available each weekday at 7:30 AM as well as on the weekends at 9 AM. The new flight to St. Louis will replace one less traveled Minneapolis flight, which previously left Ft. Dodge weekdays at 6:30 AM and weekends at 9 AM.

Because of this, there will no longer be weekend flights to Minneapolis, but passengers to St. Louis will have more availability to travel. Air Choice One’s flight schedules from Fort Dodge, IA to Mason City, IA, and Chicago, IL are unchanged.

“We are honored to provide service to the Fort Dodge community,” said Shane Storz, CEO of Air Choice One. “We always look out for what will best meet our passenger’s needs, and there has been a high demand for more flights to St. Louis. Switching one of our flights that had previously flown to Minneapolis so that it now flies to St. Louis allows us to best meet the needs of our passengers using the resources we already have. 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.
