FALLS CREEK – DuBois Regional Airport Manager Bob Shaffer confirmed Friday at the DuBois-Jefferson Counties Regional Airport Authority meeting that Gulfstream International, the company set to take over commercial air service at the airport, will not be operational until at least Jan. 1.
Until that time, Mesa Air will provide commercial air service.
Shaffer said Gulfstream is still in negotiations with US Airways, and Gulfstream is close to securing the airplanes needed to service the DuBois Airport.
“They’re still coming,” Shaffer said. “They’re still working on it.”
The U.S. Department of Transportation bid air service at DuBois after Mesa announced earlier this year that it would stop serving DuBois and several other small airports. Gulfstream was the successful bidder to provide air service to DuBois, but Mesa will continue to run flights until Gulfstream can take over service.
