Flights to D.C. to continue from Parkersburg area
(2008-07-23)
(WOUB) - Colgan Airlines will continue to provide flights between the Parkersburg area and Washington, D.C.

Mid-Ohio Valley Regional Airport manager Terry Moore says the U.S. Department of Transportation recently approved Colgan's $2.2 million-a-year bid to continue providing 12 flights per week.

Gulfstream International Airlines also submitted a bid.

With recent changes in air carriers, airport officials say they wanted some continuity of service.

Colgan has operated flights out of the airport near Parkersburg for about a year. Its new contract runs from Aug. 1 through July 31, 2010.

Daily flights leave the airport at 10:25 a.m. and 7 p.m.
