Evansville officials approve flights to Indianapolis

The Evansville-Vanderburgh Airport Authority yesterday approved commuter flights to Indianapolis through the Massachusetts carrier service Cape Air. When the flights start, possibly in October, they will be the first flights between the cities in two years.

Tickets for the flights on the nine-passenger Cessna 420s are likely to be $85 to $125, according to the Evansville Courier & Press.

South Bend officials last week approved using Cape Air for flights to Indianapolis.

Commuter flights between Evansville and Indianapolis have been unavailable since Indianapolis-based ATA Airlines sought bankruptcy protection.

ATA, which offered the Evansville service for only a few months, sought to plug a hole in air service that had existed since the 2001 terrorist attacks resulted in service being discontinued.
