UPDATE:

DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - A statement from the Dothan-Houston County Airport Authority Executive Director, Adam Hartzog, was released following the announcement of flight cuts at the Dothan Regional Airport.

Hartzog revealed the change of three flights per day to two fights per day would take place October 6th.

"The schedule will be analyzed every 30 days, with a plan to restore capacity as soon as staffing challenges have subsided.

Delta has stated that this was a difficult decision, but remains committed to the Wiregrass, with no plans to reduce capacity any further at this time.

We apologize for any inconvenience, and hope that you continue to consider using our airport for your traveling needs."

Adam Hartzog, Executive Director

Dothan is one of 40 airports in the US to experience this reduction, according to Delta Airlines. Delta indicated this change is a reflection of pilot and ground handler shortages throughout their global system.
