Direct Air Ends Service Out Of Hagerstown Airport
HAGERSTOWN, Md. (AP) — Direct Air is ending its service out of Hagerstown Regional Airport, leaving the airport with a single carrier.
Direct Air started flying twice a week from Hagerstown to Myrtle Beach, S.C., and Lakeland, Fla., on June 23.
The company announced Tuesday that it is suspending service, and all customers who bought tickets will be given full refunds.
Ed Warneck, a managing partner for Direct Air, tells The Herald-Mail of Hagerstown that Hagerstown could be a good “seasonal market” and that he hopes to resume service next spring.
Warneck says “sales were soft” and not what the company needed to continue service.
The departure leaves Cape Air as the only local carrier. Cape Air flies between Hagerstown and Baltimore-Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
