Cape Air to become essential air service carrier for Owensboro-Daviess Co. Regional Airport

DAVIESS CO., KY (WFIE) -

Passengers will be able to fly with Cape Air for at least four more years at the Owensboro-Daviess County Regional Airport.

The airport board met Tuesday. They'll make the recommendation to the U.S. Department of Transportation to have Cape Air as the essential air service carrier for Owensboro, beginning January 2016.

Airport Manager Bob Whitmer says this will expand flights, adding three round trip flights a day to and from Saint Louis.
