WORCESTER, Mass. - Direct Air, the only air carrier at Worcester Regional Airport, has cancelled all its flights through May 15, leaving Central Mass. residents who booked spring vacation flights in the lurch.
The carrier, who flew to Myrtle Beach, SC and Orlando/Sanford Fla. out of Worcester, unexpectedly suspended all flights Tuesday, stranding travelers.
"Direct Air finds it necessary to suspend flight operation from Tuesday, March 13, 2012 until May 15, 2012," the airline posted on its website. "This decision was made to address operational matters. We are currently evaluating strategic alternatives for Direct Air. Direct Air is committed to our passengers, employees, and the communities we serve."
Passengers holding reservations for Direct Air Flights in the meantime were advised to contact their credit card companies to arrange for a refund.
