The return of an early morning departure flight from the Brainerd Lakes Regional Airport is sure to please many business travelers according to Airport Manager Rick Adair.
The SkyWest schedule, listed this week in a Brainerd Lakes Chamber announcement, includes weekday outbound flights at 7:30 a.m. That particular flight, Adair said, would be welcomed by business community members who want to make connections to flights at Minneapolis-St.Paul International Airport.
“Absolutely, for our business travelers that’s a real need,” he said.
The SkyWest schedule will go into effect Dec. 15.
Also welcomed by many, he said will be a weekday flight that returns to Brainerd around 8:30 p.m., as opposed to the current flight that returns to Brainerd closer to 10:30 p.m.
“A lot of people are excited about that,” he said.
The SkyWest weekday schedule call for outbound flights are at 7:30 a.m. and 3:19 p.m. to Minneapolis-St. Paul and inbound flights are at 2:25 p.m. and 8:27 p.m. On weekends, the inbound flight will be at 2:25 p.m. and the outbound flight will be at 3:19 p.m.
