Rochester, MN (August 22, 2018)Elite Airways has announced the cancellation of air service to St. Augustine and Phoenix from Rochester International Airport (RST). Elite cited low bookings as the reason for cancelling the service that was scheduled to begin in October.

“It is unfortunate Elite Airways has made a decision to no longer bring service to the Rochester market” said John Reed, executive director of Rochester International Airport. “We share in the community’s disappointment that this new air service was cancelled.”

There are tremendous opportunities to continue growing the flights available from Rochester International Airport. The community is rallying behind the efforts to “Fly Local” as evident by the year-to-date 45% growth in passengers. The air service on American, Delta and United Airlines continues to strengthen with increased passenger utilization, leading to more frequencies per day and larger aircraft on routes to Atlanta, Chicago and Minneapolis-St. Paul.

“We thank our community for understanding the importance of choosing to Fly Local and supporting RST” said Reed. “We will continue working on recruiting airlines and routes that serve the needs of our residents and visitors.”

Elite Airways will issue refunds to any impacted travelers. Elite Airways customer service can be reached at 877-393-2510.
