PIKEVILLE, Ky. (AP) - An effort to provide commercial air service between Pikeville, Ky., and Nashville, Tenn., and has stalled.

Appalachian Air had been scheduled to start offering flights last week, but that initiative has been delayed because the airport in Pikeville hasn't yet obtained all the proper certifications.

Officials with the city, the airport board and the Southeast Kentucky Chamber of Commerce have been working on the initiative for four years.

They said the setback is disappointing but temporary.

Pikeville officials say they are working diligently to get the proper approvals.

There is no timetable on when commercial flights might begin.
