Chicago-Youngstown Flights to Begin July 1

Scheduled daily airline service between Chicago O’Hare International Airport and the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport is now set to launch on July 1.

The U.S. Department of Transportation recently approved an application by Aerodynamics Incorporated to provide the service.

Youngstown AirportThe approval came after ADI provided documentation to the DOT that it was financially strong enough to provide the service.

ADI’s documentation said that the investment company of owner John Beardsley is committed to providing the $905,000 that DOT said was required to meet its financial fitness test.

Another letter from Riverview Community Bank of Portland, Oregon, said Fountain Village Investments, which Beadsley owns, has a checking account with a balance in excess of $1 million.

ADI had initially said it would begin service using regional jet aircraft between Chicago and Youngstown on June 13. But that date was pushed back after DOT asked for more information from ADI.

Back in March, airport officials had spoken about the service starting in mid to late May.
