The County of Marquette and Lake Superior Community Partnership (LSCP) are pleased to announce the return of non-stop air service from Sawyer International Airport (MQT) to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport (MSP). The flights will begin in March 2017, and run through the end of August, on a six month trial basis. If successful, the flights could become permanent.

"The potential that if the flights are successful, and have good load factors, it would potentially become a permanent flight," said Sawyer Airport Manager Duane Duray.

The Delta Airlines Flights will leave Sawyer Airport each day at 4:02 P.M., and arriving flights from Minneapolis will land at Sawyer at 3:37 P.M. This new service will conveniently give Marquette residents the ability to connect to over 500 flights worldwide from Minneapolis.

"Marquette County is pleased with SkyWest Airlines’ decision to bring back service to Minneapolis," said Gerry Corkin, County Board Chairman.

“These flights will become a great benefit for our business and leisure travelers," Duray added. "Also, I would like to thank the Marquette County Board, the local business community and Trillion Aviation for all the help and support, without which we would not be in this great position.”

Flights are available for booking now on Delta's website,
