GREENVILLE, Miss. (AP) - Three airlines are vying to provide service to Greenville Mid-Delta Airport.

The three are seeking to replace Silver Airways, which is ending service to and from Greenville.

The Delta Democrat Times reports (https://bit.ly/1nTacZV ) Air Choice One, Seaport Airlines and SunAir International are proposing 18-24 non-stop daily flights to and from Memphis International Airport.

The airlines requested subsidies from the U.S. Department of Transportation ranging from $1.5 million to $2.5 million.

Fares were set between $29 and $99 each way, depending on carrier.

The three airlines also bid to serve Tupelo Airport.

Silver Airways began service at Greenville Mid-Delta Airport in October 2012 after Delta Airlines withdrew. Air Choice One also bid to replace Delta.

Silver Airways is also ending service to Hattiesburg, Meridian and Muscle Shoals, Alabama.
