New Schedules Show Domestic Expansion but Cuts to Struggling South America


KANSAS CITY, MO – The recent addition of the Embraer 145 to the MetroAir fleet has sent the West Coast Q200 fleet back to the Midwest. Beginning July 1st, the Q200 will be used to reinforce MetroAir’s presence across the Great Plains with four new routes and additional frequencies on another three.

Meanwhile in South America, financial and political instability have led MetroAir to end scheduled service to Caracas, Venezuela, Cali, Colombia, and a reduction to thrice weekly service to Georgetown, Guyana.

“We hope to return to Caracas, Cali, and Georgetown soon,” hopes CMO Anders Young, “Unfortunately the current state of travel to certain South American countries is not the best.”

To end on a positive note, July 1st marks the beginning of MetroAir’s scheduled service to Cuba, with flights commencing to Veradero and Santa Clara.
