PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Representatives of three regional airlines that want to serve Pierre will be in the capital city next week to meet with city officials.

Aerodynamics Inc. of Beachwood, Ohio; Boutique Air of San Francisco; and Great Lakes Aviation of Cheyenne, Wyoming, all have submitted proposals to serve Pierre under the Essential Air Service federal subsidy program.

Mayor Laurie Gill tells KCCR radio that each airline will send a representative and a plane to Pierre next week, and meet with a committee reviewing the proposals.

City officials will have until Nov. 17 to submit comments to the federal Transportation Department on which carrier the city supports.

Great Lakes currently provides daily flights from Pierre to Minneapolis and Denver, but canceled and delayed flights have been a problem in recent months.
