SkyWest flights take off in Rhinelander

Posted:
RHINELANDER (WAOW) -

Delta Airlines flights returned to Rhinelander today. In September 2012 the service, operated by SkyWest, was approved by the Department of Transportation.

Rhinelander/Oneida County Airport Manager Joseph Brauer says the first flights were close to right on time.  The first SkyWest flight was scheduled to arrive in Rhinelander at 6:46am on Friday, January 4th. It will depart at 7:11am. He said 25 passengers were on the first flight out of Rhinelander. 

In October the Rhinelander/Oneida County Airport manager told Newsline 9 the airline will run two 50 passenger jets a day with domestic and international connections through its hub in Minneapolis.

Frontier Airlines had serviced the airport but filed papers to leave as it scaled back operations throughout the midwest.  Frontier wrapped up service in Rhinelander yesterday.

Delta Airlines last served the airport in September 2011.
