Lewiston-Nez Perce Airport tower on list of FAA closures

LEWISTON, ID - The final list has been published by the FAA and the Lewiston tower is on it.

Despite reports of an April 7th closure, it is now confirmed that the Lewiston tower is scheduled to close its door on May 5th of this year.

A spokesperson for Alaska airlines said in a statement earlier Tuesday that, "Horizon Air, Alaska airlines sister airline, has the regulatory authority and procedures in place to operate flights at airports without an operating tower. Operating at airports without an operating control tower is considered a normal part of Horizon's route structure and operations."
