Erie isn't the only community in the region about to lose it's air service to Cleveland.

Silver airways has announced that it's dropping it's service to Cleveland from several airports in the region.

Among them is Franklin, Bradford, and Jamestown New York.

The airline says the change is part of its plan to strengthen operations, simplify its fleet, increase revenue, reduce costs, and better position the airline for future growth.

Meanwhile US Senator Bob Casey expressed disappointment with the airlines decision and said he will work the department of transportation to help increase air service to the affected communities in northwest Pennsylvania.
