American Airlines says Columbia runway to close for a week
COLUMBIA - American Airlines flights will be canceled for a week because of emergency runway construction, the airline said in a statement to KOMU 8 News. "We believe the airport will have more details, but the runway will be closed temporarily - for approximately one week starting [Tuesday] morning," American Airlines media relations said Monday. The Interim City Manager will hold a press conference to address the concerns Monday at 2:30 p.m. at Columbia Regional Airport. Right now, our plan will include most likely, at this point, a full closure for a short period of time so that we can address these concerns," Community Relations Director Steven Sapp told KOMU 8 News partner KFRU.
