Good News for Capital Region International Airport

March 31, 2016
Press Release

Today, the Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Agency announced that Capital Region International Airport will be able to offer a direct route to Reagan Washington National Airport. The route will be served by American Airlines. The route was previously served by Sun Country Airlines.

Representative John Moolenaar (R-Midland) represents Clinton and Shiawassee counties and issued the following statement:

"This time of year, many families from mid and northern Michigan visit Washington, D.C. so I know there is strong support for connecting Michigan's capital to our nation's capital. This route generates millions of dollars in economic activity for our state and today's decision will benefit Michigan families and businesses. I am glad the Department of Transportation and the FAA decided to restore direct service between Capital Region International Airport and Reagan Washington National Airport in response to the concerns I raised along with Congressman Bishop and Congressman Walberg."
