VIENNA, Ohio (WYTV) – The Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport (YNG) announced Wednesday that Great Lakes Jet Express will provide daily flights from the airport to Chicago.
Operated by Aerodynamics Inc. (ADI), Great Lakes Jet Express will fly the 50-seat Embraer ERJ-145 Regional Jet Aircraft. Planes will be stationed and maintained at YNG by Winner Aviation, according to a news release from the airport.
Great Lakes will operate its own ticketing counter at YNG and will share a ticketing counter at the Chicago O’Hare Airport, says YNG’s director of aviation, Dan Dickten.
Ticketing booth signage for Great Lakes Jet Express will be unveiled at the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber’s After Hours mixer at YNG from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, June 23. Registration is needed for the event by emailing the Regional Chamber at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Now that ADI has the trademark in place for the airline, everything is coming together nicely for the launch, which is just a week away,” Dickten says. “We’re also working diligently with ADI to ensure passengers have a variety of options to book their flight. Direct flights to Chicago can be booked at www.flygreatlakes.com, and passengers looking to book connecting flights to other destinations can do so on third-party sites like Expedia, Hotwire, Justfly, Kayak, Orbitz and Travelocity.”
Passengers can also book connecting flights out of Chicago by calling (800) 433-7300, or by planning a trip with their local travel agent’s office. YNG published a how-to guide for purchasing tickets, which is available to download on its website, www.yngairport.com.
