Air Service From Victoria Airport Delayed

Victoria Regional Airport

It looks like we will have to wait a little longer for the already long-awaited flights between Victoria and Houston.

Commercial air service to Houston from Victoria will start later than anticipated. According to the Victoria Advocate, Victoria Regional Airport Manager Jason Milewski said the new start date for Sun Air International, Victoria’s new air carrier, is Oct. 1, pushed back two weeks from the Sept. 17 estimated date. Milewski spoke during the Victoria County Commissioners meeting Monday, updating the court on changes. He said the later date is “just part of the process,” and he hopes details regarding booking and traveling are finalized by the week’s end. “They’re looking forward very much to starting Oct. 1,” Milewski said.

Pinnacle Airlines Corp., parent company to Victoria’s former carrier, Colgan Air, announced in March plans to pull essential air service from Victoria. Although the plan called for flights to continue until a replacement was up, the company discontinued service June 30. The airport commission selected Sun Air in mid-June.

Sun Air will make four daily flights between Victoria and Houston’s Bush Intercontinental Airport. Tickets will range from $29 to $69 each way.
