Columbia's airport aims to add another airline to its mix

WEST COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) — Columbia's airport is working to attract another airline.

Kim Jamieson, director of marketing and air service at Columbia Metropolitan Airport, says the facility has open space for an additional airline.

Jamieson says a low-cost carrier would boost interest from outlying residents of the Columbia region and attract them to the Columbia airport instead of others in the region.

Columbia's airport is served by American, Delta and United. Together, they provide more than 30 daily nonstop flights to seven cities and eight airports in the U.S.

The Post and Courier reports that United will add a route to Houston in March. American will begin a daily flight to Miami in December.
