Meadows Field to expand service to Dallas Fort Worth


Meadows Field Airport is expanding service to Dallas Fort Worth International Airport in Texas, according to Bakersfield congressman Kevin McCarthy. 

The Kern County Department of Airports is set to receive $500,000 to fund the service expansion from the Department of Transportation, McCarthy said. 

“In Texas, Bakersfield has much in common and this new travel option is sure to stimulate the economy and provide additional travel and connecting options given DFW’s hub status,” McCarthy said in a news release. 

Service is expected to begin in early 2019, provided by American Airlines, according to county officials.
