Jan 19, 2018

SAWYER, MI--   A morning flight to Detroit from Sawyer International Airport is returning in March. 

SkyWest Airlines, operating as Delta, will operate two daily flights to Detroit Metro. The earlier flight will depart at approximately 10:26 a.m. Sawyer will continue its current flight to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport at 7:30 a.m. and its non-stop flight to Chicago O’Hare via American Airlines at 8:47 a.m.

Airport Manager Duane DuRay says the morning flight to Detroit was eliminated late last year. The airport and its stakeholders shared concerns with SkyWest and asked that the schedule be reviewed in the new year. He says he’s pleased the critical morning flight is back.
