A new airline is now flying out of Easterwood. But don't expect to get a ticket for this flight.
That's because FedEx Air will be the newest addition to the Easterwood fleet.
The shipping company will now fly to Houston each night and return to College Station the next morning.
"I think it means a lot more to the businesses from the local area than it means to Easterwood," Easterwood Airport director of aviation John Happ said. "We're happy about it, but I'm extremely excited about what it does for future businesses coming to College Station that will have this service. "
FedEx does not have sole rights to Easterwood.
Happ says it is a possibility more companies could approach the airport.
