Two Iowa airports are left without any airline service after their only major customer suspended service this week.

Wyoming-based Great Lakes Airlines is the only carrier to fly out of Mason City and Fort Dodge.

The company announced this weekend that new federal guidelines have left them without enough qualified pilots to maintain their scheduled flight load.

The airline says it is working to hire more pilots soon so it can resume service at both airports.

Meanwhile both airports say they’re looking for new airlines to move in.
