The airport shuttles from the Brainerd Lakes Area to Minneapolis St. Paul International Airport has a new owner.
Effective today Executive Express has sold their airport shuttle branch to Groome Transportation.
Executive Express owner Larry Logeman says that Executive Express still exists, it will continue to operate private charters, coach buses, and group transportation.
Any and all passengers who booked a reservation for airport transportation through Executive Express, no matter how far in the future they booked it, will be honored. Logeman says those travelers will be contacted by a Groome representative to confirm travel dates, times and pickup locations.
Logeman said with the sale, Executive Express will go from about 115 employees to about 35 or 40. Groome offered employment to pretty much all Executive Express drivers and dispatch people, but there were a few positions not retained.
The sale takes effect today.
