Economic Development for Central Oregon met its goal and "then some" to hopefully make the direct flight between Redmond and L.A  a reality.

 

At the end of business on Monday, $375, 500 in travel vouchers was collected to demonstrate to American Air that there is a strong interest in the flight.

 

"I can't tell you how gratifying it is to work in a region, where in this short time line you can actually have businesses and public entities come together to support the same cause. In this short time line, it's amazing. So hats off to Central Oregon for help making it happen."

 

Roger Lee with EDCO says the decision now rests with American Airlines and any possible announcements regarding proposed air service, start dates, times and costs would be made by American Air.

 

Earlier, EDCO was able to raise $100,000 from businesses and governments to help Redmond Airport get ready for the new service.
