Northwest Alabama Regional Airport

The Northwest Alabama Regional Airport Board is asking one of its airlines to stop serving the airport.

The request comes after several complaints of unsatisfactory performance by SeaPort Airlines in the Muscle Shoals airport.

Local media reports the airport board unanimously voted earlier this week to request that the airline voluntarily remove its service.

The Oregon-based airline began offering four daily flights from Muscle Shoals to Nashville in January, but reduced its flight schedule to one daily flight earlier this summer.
