and St. Louis to be restored
Send a link to a friend

[JULY 19, 2003]  Patrons of Central Illinois Regional Airport in Bloomington will soon have access to American Airlines flights to Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport as well as Lambert-St. Louis International Airport.

When Rep. Dan Brady and Sen. Bill Brady pledged their support for the expansion of O’Hare Airport during the spring legislative session, they also asked that jet service from O’Hare be restored to the Central Illinois Regional Airport.

American Airlines has had some financial troubles, but an announcement July 16 indicates that progress is being made, thanks to changes being made by American’s parent company. Among those changes is a reduction in the size of the American Airlines hub in St. Louis; however, Bloomington will still retain three daily American flights to St. Louis. Even better news is that jet service to O’Hare via American Airlines, which left in November 2002, will be restored.

Jet service to O’Hare will promote regional economic development efforts because it will provide area businesses with more opportunities for travel between Bloomington and Chicago.
