Hello everyone. This is my very first topic starter so take it easy alright.

I have recently been looking at photos from SFB and I have a bunch of questions.

Is SFB a charter only airport? If so, why is it purely a charter airport and not available to normal airliners? And why go there rather than MCO?

And is this the only or one of the very few in the US that only allows charter airlines to come in? It seems like there are a lot of UK charter airlines and some domestic US charters, and no mainstream airliners, but I dont recall ever seeing anything like that anywhere else in the US.

Basically I just want some information on SFB because I am just trying to figure out how it works and why it seems so unique to me. Thanks for your help!

My customers from UK actually LIKE SFB as it is an easy airport to get through. The baggage situation in MCO is ridiculous as you have to leave your bags after clearing customs and then wait again for them in the main terminal. Amazingly in LGW the same design of shuttle transport allows you not only to take your bags but trolleys as well. Is it a union thing at MCO to keep baggage handlers employed. Either way it is a silly situation and clients do not like it. The travel on the Beeline from SFB is an easy start to driving in the US and i understand that the immigration is a little more relaxed as the passengers are almost all easy to track

As far as U.S. airlines go, it's been the airport of death for smaller sked airlines. Transmeridian, Southeast, Pan Am v. III.a, and even JetsGo from up north all served SFB.

Allegiant has built up a pretty good network there. But they are a regular domestic US carrier not a charter carrier.
