Airport service update

Mason City Airport Commission

MASON CITY, Iowa – It’s been nearly two weeks since the air carrier for a North Iowa Airport took off for the last time.

Those on the Mason City Airport Commission met Monday afternoon, while they are excited to get the ball rolling on bringing a new air service back, nothing concrete is in the works right now.

Instead, numbers are being drawn up by the Department of Transportation to see if they can attract an airline to Mason City.

Head of the Commission Board, Tom Hovland, says they hope to see some bids come in soon.

“We will go through them. We will interview each carrier and hopefully we have some choices and then we go from there,” said Hovland.

Hovland says the board has been working very hard on the issue.

Great Lakes Air Service left Mason City in part because of a shortage of pilots.
