Can any of you provide me with airline information about the following airports that once had scheduled service, but no longer do?

Riverside, CA
Apple Valley, CA
Fullerton, CA

What carriers were there? A/C types used? Destinations? Why all service ended? Could service ever be restarted?

Thanks.

I think all 3 of those were at one time served by either Bonanza / Hughes Air West. Most likely with DC-3 or possibly F-27 and the flights were to LAX (I believe)

Tuscaloosa, Alabama used to have American Eagle. Service was discontinued due to low volume. There have been discussions about resuming regular service, but with Birmingham barely an hour away, not much has happened.



I'm not dumb. I just have a command of thoroughly useless information.

Worcestor, MA.

In the early 70's, DL flew DC-9's there. In the mid 80's and early 90's, PI, NY, and US all had mainline jets. More recently, DL and AA had regional jets there.

Now there is nothing.

Naples, Florida is loosing their last carrier, USAirways, in less than two weeks. Topeka, Kansas lost thier last carrier, USAirways, last month. Jamestown, New York is loosing thier last carrier, USAirways, at the end of the summer. In the past few months, USAirways also has pulled out of Hickory and Southern Pines, NC, Lancaster, PN, and Worceseter, MS. They were, you guessed it, the last carrier at each airport.

Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport no longer has scheduled airline service. At one time, United Express flew BAe ATPs to ORD, Northwest Airlink flew Saab 340s to DTW, and USAirways Express flew Beech 1900s to PIT from the airport. The last airline at YNG was Northwest Airlink. They have a very nice new facility there, it would be great to see an airline return scheduled service to YNG.

I think that Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport is located to close to both PIT and CAK, and also being in one of, if not THE most depressed areas of the rust belt does not sit well to see this airport rebound anytime soon.

I can think of Mankato, MN off the top of my head. I remember in the late 70's and early 80's, Republic used to serve it from MSP. After that, a small carrier known as Bemidgi (I'm sure that's not the correct spelling) took over the route. Now there is nothing. It's strange, as its a city of about 50,000 and has a couple of very, very large companies. ADM has a huge operation there, as does one or two others. It is still about a 90 minute drive from MSP. I've often thought that United Express from ORD or Delta Connection from CVG could make it work.

Utica,NY once served by empire/oneida (I believe/think, but I don't know) and more recently by Continental Connection is now....without any service.
Montpelier,VT (state capitol) someone told me that Delta had service, but I didn't buy it.



What now?

Santa Rosa, CA (STS) lost commercial air service when United Express/SkyWest pulled out in October 2001. Service may return, but we will have to wait and see on that one.

Marathon, Florida has scheduled air service to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida on Pan American (not PanAm), which flies three daily Cesnnas. Also, if everything works out well, Continental Connection/Gulfstream International will launch Miami-Marathon service in the fall. They are working it out with airport authorities and local hotels.

FLAIRPORT,

Athens, GA currently has airline service. US Airways Express (operated by Air Midwest) flies three flights AHN-CLT using B1900Ds. They also used to have ASA service to ATL, but that was dropped some years back (especially since Athens is practically now a suburb of Atlanta)

Fort Worth- Meacham (FTW) had some service in the past, most recent was short-lived service by Mesa to Houston.

As for Fullerton? Must have been with relatively small aircraft; FUL is a fine GA airport, but its runway is only 3121' long.






...three miles from BRONS, clear for the ILS one five approach...

Battle Creek Mich and Jackson Michigan used to have service in the late 1980s before Battle Creeks ops moved to AZO. I think Allegan County used to have scheduled service too.

Does anyone know if Charlevoix Michigan still has scheduled service? There used to be Beaver Island Airways on Islander aircraft.
