Denver Air the top choice of the Gogebic Iron County Airport Board
Written by Jesse Baroka on July 23, 2021
IRONWOOD TOWNSHIP – The Gogebic Iron County Airport board is proposing to use Denver Air as its new air carrier. Yesterday, Denver Air, Air ChoiceOne, and Southern Air carriers gave proposals to provide essential air service to the airport. Gogebic-Iron County Airport Board Vice Chair James Lorenson said the airport does not actually choose which airline will provide flights, but it does make a proposal. As for next steps, the board will be proposing a recommendation of Denver Air to the Federal Department Of Transportation. The board is hoping to have a new airline providing flights in place by the end of the year. Boutique Airlines – the airport’s current flight provider – requested to be withdrawn from the essential air service at the airport after an emergency exit door came off one of its planes before an Ironwood-bound flight took off from Minneapolis in May, and after a wheel feel off another plane just before landing in Chicago last winter. No injuries in either incident.
