Eight flights were canceled, and seven of the scheduled 120 SkyWest flights between Aberdeen and the Twin Cities departed more than 15 minutes late in April. SkyWest serves Aberdeen with two round-trip flights a day to Minneapolis. Last year in April, not a single SkyWest flight between Aberdeen and Minneapolis departed late, but four of the 120 scheduled flights between the two cities were canceled.
The American News tracks local commercial air service using the federal 15-minute late departure rule. Departure time, not arrival time, is what is tracked and comes from Delta’s website. The News has been tracking flights since March 2008.
