Dayton officials are reacting to news that Southwest Airlines is leaving the Dayton International Airport in June of 2017.

In a press release, Dayton Director of Aviation Terrence Slaybaugh says Southwest's announcement is part of a growing trend concentrating airline service in larger hub markets.
