Silver Airways chosen for new Williamstown flights
WILLIAMSTOWN, W.Va. – Silver Airways will begin offering nonstop flights from Mid-Ohio Valley Regional Airport to Washington Dulles International Airport in October.
Mid-Ohio Valley manager Jeff McDougle tells media outlets that the U.S. Department of Transportation has approved Silver Airways to provide the new service.
McDougle says the Mid-Ohio Valley Regional Airport Authority recommended Silver Airways to provide the flights.
He says Silver Airways will offer 12 nonstop roundtrip flights a week. Six other flights from the Williamstown airport will have stops at either the Morgantown or Clarksburg airports.
The new service begins Oct. 1.
Silver Airways will provide the service under the federally subsidized Essential Air Service Program. The program is designed to provide connecting service from secondary airports to larger hubs.
