Looking through our local paper here in Ocala, Fl and saw an ad for TransMeridian Airlines is going to start 757 service from SFB-SJU. The start date is on 27Jun. If anyone has further info on new routes that Trans-Meridian will be starting please feel free to post. I hope this shows the potential that SFB (Orlando Sanford International Airport) has to draw new carriers to the central Florida area. Sale fares right now are US$99 o/w to inagurate the service.

This is some very interesting information. I had no idea whatsoever that Transmeridian was even considering starting scheduled service, even though their charter flight schedule was fairly consistant out of some airports over the last six months or so.
Another interesting point; Transmeridian usually parks their aircraft at PSM, as opposed to paying the high ramp fees at BOS. They will operate an occasional charter out of Pease as well, I believe. They have been working closely with Pan Am Services (one of the PSM FBO's) for aircraft servicing, etc. I wonder what the whole SFB - SJU route will do to that relationship - unless Transmeridan and Pan Am have some plans together.
