GREENVILLE, Miss. (AP) - The Greenville City Council has selected Boutique Air to as the city’s new airline.

The Delta Democrat-Times reports (http://bit.ly/1HRQMs8 ) the decision came Thursday during a special council meeting.

Now, the U.S. Department of Transportation must approve the city’s decision.

Boutique Air would replace Seaport Airlines, which in May announced its intentions to end service to and from Greenville Mid-Delta Airport.

San Francisco-based Boutique proposes air service from Greenville to Nashville and Greenville to Dallas. It was one of four airlines to apply for the Greenville route.

SeaPort Airlines will continue providing air service to Greenville before Boutique Air takes over.

The city hopes to have the new airline start by Oct. 1.

Portland, Oregon-based SeaPort continues to serve Tupelo and the northwest Alabama city of Muscle Shoals.
