Chautauqua County will have a new airline... and, return to a popular, past destination point beginning next Oct. 1.  That from County Executive Vince Horrigan... who says the U.S. Department of Transporation has selected Sun Air to provide Essential Air Service out of the County Airport near Jamestown.  Horrigan calls it "great news..." and, adds that the county had been working hard with U-S Senator Charles Schumer to find a new carrier after Silver Airways announced early this year that they would stop providing regional service by mid-year.  However... Horrigan says Silver will continue providing service through Sept. 30, and Sun Air will use Pittsburgh as it's hub.  He says having air service is important to most of Chautauqua County's businesses... and, local tourism.  He says they're excited about what a Sun Air official recently told them about using Pittsburgh as a 'hub' again... and, low cost fares.  Horrigan also thanked Senator Schumer for helping the county keep it's EAS Status... and, find a new carrier.  He says Schumer was "instrumental" in this positive outcome for the county.  In the beginning... Horrigan says Sun Air will offer four flights each weekday... and, two each on Saturdays and Sundays.
