Washington County has landed a new commercial air service to fly from Hagerstown Regional Airport, county officials announced Wednesday in a news release.
The name of the new service is to be revealed at 10 a.m. Thursday in the Hagerstown Regional Airport terminal, the release said.
“Washington County has been committed to securing destination-oriented air service carriers and has been successful in landing a partnership to offer this service to area residents,” the release said.
The county has been searching for a new destination-oriented air service since Direct Air ended its service to Myrtle Beach and Lakeland, Fla. in August.
The only commercial air service currently at the airport is Cape Air’s federally-subsidized commuter flights between Hagerstown and Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport.
