CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - RegionsAir commuter service to St. Louis has resumed, one day after the company shut down operations to nine cities, including Cape Girardeau and the Williamson County Airport in Marion, Illinois.

Early Saturday, the company that operates American Connection said the federal aviation association requested clarification and a change in how the airline trains its line check airmen, which is some of their pilots.

Illinois Senator Dick Durbin believes RegionsAir has failed the tests of safety and service.

American Connection customers should contact American airlines

at (800) 433-7300 or their local travel agent to reconfirm their travel plans.
