Re: FI begins inaugural service to MCI today

In that youtube video, https://youtu.be/V3tDVAUTQdk?t=295 the AM E145. I search FR24 and Flightaware and only found one flight from MCI-GDL from 5/25. https://flightaware.com/live/flight/SLI8760/history/20180525/2217Z/MMGL/KMCI

What is the deal on this flight? Charter?
