SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Weber County officials want to know if there is sufficient interest to bring passenger service to Ogden-Hinckley Airport.

Ogden had regional air service for passengers in the 1950s. Officials would like to see that service restored by 2007.

The airport is trying to get a grant to study the issue from the Federal Aviation Administration.

If Weber County can find an airline willing to add Ogden to it's flight schedule, Ogden could be connected to regional airports in Boise, Orange County, Calif., and Scottsdale, Ariz.

The move could save travelers time and reduce the hassle of larger airports.

Commuter jets used by regional carriers like JetBlue Airways and SkyWest usually carry between 60 and 80 passengers.

Cache County officials conducted a similar study and are now upgrading the Logan/Cache Airport. When that's done, Logan will have regional service to Denver.
