Press Release

DEL RIO, TX – Following U.S. Representative Will Hurd’s successful efforts last Congress to bring commercial flights to Del Rio, today a new flight from Del Rio International Airport (DRT) to Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport (DFW) has been announced. In response to the news, Hurd released the following statement:

“With Laughlin Air Force Base, multiple Department of Homeland Security facilities, a growing international trade community, the third largest lake in the State of Texas, endless hiking trails and prehistoric cave art, Del Rio is a frequent destination for business and leisure travelers alike. Increasing connectivity to Del Rio saves residents countless hours of travel time while providing economic gains for the local community,” said Hurd. “I’m pleased to see the continued results of my bipartisan TSA Fairness Act, that helped reinstate commercial air service to Del Rio last year.”
