Cherry Capital Airport Welcomes First Non-Stop Flights from D.C., Charlotte
Services at the Cherry Capital keep taking off- two new non-stop flights landed Saturday.
The first flight landing Saturday was from Washington Dulles, followed by Charlotte, North Carolina,
The airport greeted passengers with a ribbon cutting, and of course cherry pie.
TVC says United’s Washington Dulles will give travelers a one stop connection to South America and Europe.
American Airlines offers the non-stop flight to Charlotte, North Carolina, one of the fastest growing hubs in the U.S.
Airport director Kevin Klein says the seasonal flights are a great way to continue to expand its services.
“It’s a starting point for airlines on a low risk basis to put in a Saturday only flight to add a new market to cultivate that market into years following. This year we announced Sarasota, Charlotte, Washington D.C.., so adding those three cities I think there’s more to come,” Klein said.
The two new non-stop flights will run every Saturday through the end of August.
Coming soon for Cherry Capital, daily service to Denver starts June 20.
