The City of Columbia announced today that the Air Service Revenue Guarantee fund was invoiced $0 dollars for November 2013. This is the ninth consecutive month in the past ten months in which American Airlines did not require a payment from the Air Service Revenue Guarantee fund.
Passenger load factors remain high and pre-bookings on future flights continue to perform very well. As of November 30, passenger enplanements at COU total 39, 801 and deplanements total 40,537. For the same time one year ago, emplanements totaled 35,524 and deplanements totaled 35,236
We thank our customers who fly from COU for their support of Columbia Regional Airport and American Airlines.
American Airlines began service from COU on February 14, 2013 and provides two daily nonstop flights to Dallas/Fort Worth and one daily nonstop flight to Chicago O'Hare from Columbia Regional Airport.
The Air Service Revenue Guarantee fund consists of monies from numerous private businesses in Columbia and mid-Missouri as well as funds from various government entities in mid-Missouri.
