The director of Easterwood Airport was concerned after American Eagle informed them of some immediate changes, but turns out those changes are improvements that passengers will soon see and feel for themselves.

American Eagle announced they will take three turbo-prop aircraft at the airport out of inventory and replace them with faster and more convenient regional jets (RJs.)

The director, John Happ, believes the old aircrafts carried more cons than pros including the age and the amount of maintenance that was required on the aircraft. They are excited about the replacement.

"What that means is a much more reliable service, much more comfortable service for a lot of people, but we are really excited about having the RJs returned back to Easterwood," said Happ.

Happ says the three old planes will probably be sold.
