STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – A study indicates that a north-central Oklahoma community could support daily commercial airline flights from its airport to the Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

The Journal Record reports the study by the city of Stillwater is the latest in a three-year effort to obtain commercial air service at the Stillwater Regional Airport.

A Stillwater Chamber of Commerce official says the goal is to begin providing jet service for 50 passengers at the airport.

Stillwater received a nearly $450,000 grant last September from the federal transportation department to establish commercial air service. The director of the Oklahoma Aeronautics Commission says the money allows Stillwater city and civic leaders to compete for commercial air service that might otherwise be unobtainable.
