Direct flights to Minneapolis won't resume for a while

The earliest Bearskin Airlines will be able to offer direct flights from Thunder Bay to Minneapolis is January.

Executive Vice President Cliff Friesen says there are a number of steps the company must take before Bearskin can offer the service. Friesen also added that Bearskin plans to streamline the operation by using a smaller plane and looking at the frequency of flights.

Delta was offering the service previously, but opted to discontinue it, citing poor performance as a reason.
