Beginning in April, Aberdeen Regional Airport once again will have two flights a day on the weekend.
Airport manager Mike Wilson made that announcement at Thursday's meeting of the Aberdeen Airport Board.
The Delta Connection airlines serving Aberdeen, Mesaba Aviation and Pinnacle Airlines, dropped to one flight per weekend day in early January.
SkyWest Airlines will take over as the Delta Connection serving Aberdeen on March 2. For the next few days after that, Mesaba and Pinnacle might still serve as the carrier before SkyWest takes over for good.
Wilson said that under the SkyWest schedule, two flight times will change slightly. The early morning departure will move from 6:40 to 6:25 a.m. The late-night arrival will move from 11:10 p.m. to 10:50 p.m.
The airport board will have a special meeting at 1 p.m. today to discuss approving a lease agreement with SkyWest. The lease will go to the Aberdeen City Council on Feb. 21.
Wilson also announced at Thursday's meeting that the airport had 1,907 plane boardings in January, a 13.78 percent increase over January 2011.
