Changes to the flight schedule at the Waterloo Regional Airport should make it easier for local travelers to fly in and out of the Cedar Valley this spring and summer.

American Airlines plans to add a second flight to Waterloo's weekend schedule, beginning June 4, 2016. The flight -- to and from Chicago -- will operate each Saturday through Aug. 20, according to Keith Kaspari, Director of Aviation for Waterloo Regional Airport.

The flight schedule for summer season travel will be as follows:


Waterloo Regional Airport - Weekend Summer Schedule

FLIGHT # DEPARTURE DEPARTING FROM FREQUENCY ARRIVING CHICAGO
3349 6:24 A.M. WATERLOO SATURDAY 7:35 A.M.

Said Kaspari, “The City of Waterloo would like to thank officials at American Airlines for the additional flight on Saturdays – thereby increasing the flight flexibility for Waterloo’s summer season passengers located throughout the Greater Cedar Valley Region.”

Waterloo Regional Airport officials also recently announced changes to the facility's spring flight schedule. The new schedule, which began April 5, is as follows:


Waterloo Regional Airport - Daily Spring/Summer Schedule

FLIGHT # DEPARTURE DEPARTING FROM FREQUENCY ARRIVING CHICAGO
3349 6:24 A.M. WATERLOO DAILY 7:40 A.M.
3214 12:55 P.M. WATERLOO SUNDAY-FRIDAY 2:07 P.M.

 

FLIGHT # DEPARTURE DEPARTING FROM FREQUENCY ARRIVING WATERLOO
3214 10:10 A.M. CHICAGO SUNDAY-FRIDAY 11:13 A.M.
3199 8:25 P.M. CHICAGO DAILY 9:28 P.M.

“As we transition from a very successful winter season and first quarter ... this new schedule should be well received by our local and area passengers located throughout the Greater Cedar Valley Region of Northeast Iowa," Kaspari said. "Historically, as passenger travel increases during the late Spring and Summer months, Waterloo will continue to be looked at more favorably due to the shorter lines to get checked into your flight, shorter lines at passenger security screening, very competitively priced airfares, and cheaper parking at only $5.00 per day.”
