DOT selects Southern Airways Express for Quincy EAS contract

DOT selects Southern Airways Express for Quincy EAS contract

1 month, 1 week ago by Scott Hardy

4-year deal starts December 1

A Florida-based airline has been approved to start providing passenger flights at Quincy Regional Airport to both Chicago and St. Louis.

The US Department of Transportation has announced that it's approved Southern Airways Express to provide Essential Air Service at Quincy Regional. The four-year contract starts December 1st, and calls for Southern Airways to provide 18 round-trip flights a week to both O'Hare International Airport in Chicago, and Lambert-St. Louis International. Southern Airways will make over $4  million a year under the Federal contract. The approval came several months after the City of Quincy's Aviation Committee recommended Southern Airways to the DOT.

Southern Airways will take over for Cape Air, who announced their intention earlier this year to stop providing EAS service to both Quincy and Burlington, citing their shortage of pilots.
