Cherry Capital Airport Welcomes 1st Non-Stop Flight to Phoenix

The first non-stop flight from Phoenix, Arizona landed at TVC Wednesday night.

Right now there are six nonstop flights, the most the airport has ever had through the colder months.

Airport director Kevin Klein says the flight offered by Allegiant is an ultra low cost flight at $69 each way.

One Northern Michigan woman who is originally from Arizona says having this flight is a game changer for her.

“My children and my grandchildren they are in Arizona. I go as often as I can, now I’ll be able to go even more often. So exciting,” said Gaye Carpenter, who lives in Boyne City.

Flights to Phoenix will fly out every Wednesday and Saturday year round.        .
