(MANHATTAN, KS – September 21, 2023) — American Airlines will resume commercial air service to Manhattan Regional Airport on September 25.
The first return flight will arrive at approximately 11:45 a.m., where it will be greeted with a water-cannon salute from Manhattan Fire Department Station 4 apparatus as it pulls into the jet bridge at the terminal. Local media outlets are invited to observe when the flight arrives, but overall numbers will be limited due to escorting procedures on the ramp.
“We are extremely excited to be able to reopen Manhattan Regional Airport to full service and put the runway construction project behind us,” said Manhattan Regional Airport Director Brandon Keazer.
“We are glad to welcome travelers back to our airport and are extremely thankful for their patience throughout the construction project.”
Keazer said airport staff will hand out “swag bags” in the “sterile area” to customers who are traveling on September 25.
In addition, Manhattan Regional Airport will provide 25 days of free parking in recognition of the 25-day construction delay. The duration of this free parking promotion will be from September 25 through October 19, 2023.
