RegionsAir resumes service at Lambert


St. Louis, MO – The regional airline RegionsAir is flying again from St. Louis after a conflict with the Federal Aviation Administration forced cancellation of all three-dozen flights on Saturday.

The conflict concerned a policy on how pilots are trained. An official with the airline says the issue was worked out, with the FAA now satisfied the airline is meeting its requirements.

RegionsAir flies as AmericanConnections in the Midwest, and as ContinentalConnections in the East. Regions has flights from Lambert to Cape Girardeau, Kirksville, and Ft. Leonard Wood, Mo., along with Quincy, Springfield, Decatur and Marion, Ill. It also flies to Iowa, Indiana, Kentucky, and Tennessee.
