Great News from Airport Director

Good news from Clinton Torp, the Airport Director at the La Crosse Regional Airport. The Airport will be adding a fourth flight to ORD (Chicago O’Hare International Airport). Please see his message below. 

“We have some great news. AA will be adding their fourth flight to ORD starting June 7th which is currently scheduled to stay after the summer months! With the up-gauge of two of those flights to CRJ-700’s with 70 seats we will see an overall increase of 40 seats per day during the summer and 90 seats over the winter. AA has continued to be more aggressive with their pricing which has driven load factors higher resulting in additional investment in service.

This is a critical time to ask for your continued support of flying local. By responding and filling this additional capacity we will continue to send the message to our airline partners that our community can use more service and more particularly more service to new hubs.

Thank you to our many LSE Leaders! These announcements are a result of your support. Additional capacity and frequency makes it easier for you to do business. If your company has not yet joined LSE Leaders please contact me directly and I would be happy to provide you a summary of the program.

Below is the tentative flight schedule for starting this June:

AA3057 06:04 Departure – 70 Seats
DL7422 06:20 Departure – 50 Seats
AA3073 10:00 Departure – 70 Seats
DL4294 11:20 Departure – 50 Seats
AA3850 14:50 Departure – 50 Seats
DL4295 15:56 Departure – 50 Seats
AA3143 18:22 Departure – 50 Seats

We are also still waiting for word on our SCASD grant for Eastbound service. If we are successful in obtaining the grant we will start working with our airline partners with the hopes of making the return of a Detroit flight a reality.

Thanks again for support your local airport.


Clinton Torp
