Delta Airlines is reducing the number of flights it offers at Sioux Gateway Airport

Posted:
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) -

An update now on a story we first brought you over the weekend.

Delta is reducing flights out of Sioux City from three to two.

Right now, those flights go out at 6:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. in the morning as well as 4:30 p.m. in the afternoon.

Delta plans to stop the mid-morning flight.

Sioux City's airport director says the airline hopes that combining the two early flights will increase ridership from 50 to 80-percent.

Delta is waiting to find out whether they'll receive a federal subsidy to continue flying out of Sioux Gateway airport.
