The final Delta Airlines flight from Regina to Minneapolis left Regina this afternoon.
The end of this regular flight leaves the Regina airport without a regular international flight.
Many of the people flying on the final flight were disappointed by the decision to end the flight.
Travis Hawkis said the cancelling is a problem for him.
“Very disappointed I take this flight quite a bit to the states and it’s going to create some problems for me, business wise as well as personal.”
Mitch Myer who is from Regina but lives in the United States said the Minneapolis flight was a good one for him.
“We’re real disappointed obviously, it was a nice flight to be able to fly to Raleigh Durham and then to Minneapolis, then here.
Myer said he thinks the end of this flight will mean changes for him.
“Now it’ll be a longer flight, more expensive, but we’ll certainly keep coming back.”
Ken Lewderback said the end of the regular Minneapolis flight would mean changes for him as well.
“We’ll probably fly into Minot or Saskatoon and drive down”
Despite the loss of the Minneapolis flight there were some passengers optimistic that a replacement flight could be found.
Cory Peters who was heading to San Diego via Minneapolis was optimistic a replacement flight would be found.
“Things have come, things have gone, we’d never would have thought that we would have had direct flights to Denver or Chicago, was a good run while those lasted too, hopefully something will come around again.”
Currently the Regina Airport Authority has not announced a replacement for the Minneapolis flight.
