Delta Airlines Flies Nonstop to Cincinnati and New York for the Holidays

On December 22, 2007, Delta Airlines will begin non-stop air service to Cincinnati. The flight will depart five times weekly (Thursday through Monday,) from Okaloosa Regional Airport at 12:30 p.m. and arrives at Cincinnati International Airport in just over an hour and a half.

Also, for a limited time, Delta will begin non-stop air service to New York’s LaGuardia International Airport for the holidays. The flights will begin December 22, 2007, and run through January 2, 2008, departing daily from the Okaloosa Regional Airport at 11:30 a.m. This flight offers a great opportunity for those from New York to travel home for the holidays or to spend New Years in Times Square. We hope to maximize the capacity of this flight in an effort to make it a more permanent air service destination offered by Okaloosa Regional Airport.

The aircraft operated by Delta for these flights is a 50 seat Regional Jet. The addition of these non-stop flights will allow for more choices and convenience for our passengers and businesses and enhance the competitive advantages of flying Okaloosa Regional. For more information on

Customers Can Pay Water Bills with a Phone Call

A new computerized phone system is now activated at Okaloosa County Water & Sewer. The system will allow customers to hear information about their account as well as make a payment using Visa, MasterCard and Discover. “We strive to improve our service to the customer, and I want to reassure customers that they can transfer out of the system anytime, by simply pressing “O” for the Operator, if they would like to talk to a person,” stated Director Jeff Littrell. “Additionally, we are working to include the American Express credit card in the near future.”
