Press conference to address flight cancellations, other topics

A press conference concerning flight cancellations and other topics will be held at West Nebraska regional Airport at 10 a.m. Wednesday.

Scottsbluff airport officials are increasingly concerned flight cancellations by Great Lakes Airlines are costing the airport
customers and airport boardings.

The Associated Press says the airline has canceled nearly two dozen flights out of Western Nebraska Regional Airport over the past few months due to new federal safety and training rules that has caused a shortage of pilots for Great Lakes and other airlines.

There were two cancellations earlier Monday.
