WATERLOO REGIONAL AIRPORT HISTORY
The Waterloo Regional Airport (Livingston Betsworth Field) is a small regional airport with limited facilities featuring two gates and one jet bridge. Delta Air Lines (formerly Northwest) was the airport’s only carrier for several years with flights to Minneapolis-Saint Paul. In late 2011, Delta Airlines stated that they would discontinue service to the Waterloo Regional Airport. Delta immediately submitted an Essential Air Service proposal to continue flying the Waterloo with the aid of government subsidies. As part of the EAS process, the Department of Transportation opened up the airport to a bidding process with other carriers. American Airlines submitted a proposal to start service between Waterloo and Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport utilizing their regional carrier, American Eagle.
