I must say that I didn't expect this short flight business to be that successful. Using a Cessna 402 to carry a few passengers within Indiana I thought might not create a spark. It appears that this is a service that is wanted and used by some business travelers even though I thought the distance would be too short to warrant a flight even for them. If I remember correctly Chicago Express had just gotten started with a similar service that did quite well. With this type of service within a state there is obviously something here that will be used.

Hey, if they want it and it works I guess it warrants renewal because that is what the Evansville-Vanderburgh Airport Authority Board has decided to do. I wish them and the airline continued good luck with this effort in these difficult economic times for airlines.

"The Evansville-Vanderburgh Airport Authority Board voted Monday to renew its contract with Cape Air, a Massachusetts airline, for another year. Under the agreement, the Airport Board pays the airline subsidies in return for flying passengers from Evansville to Indianapolis and Indianapolis to South Bend."

I'm not so sure the news is rosy; it sounds to me like there had been some expectation that they wouldn't have to do this because the operation was making enough money independently.

I flew Cape Air EVV-IND on Saturday, March 1. All but 1 of the seats were full, which was amazing for a Saturday afternoon during an off peak time of the year!

Fortunately, I was first in line boarding, so I was able to sit in the co pilot's seat.

Trip report to be posted soon!

I think this route stands a chance to be successful for at least a few more years, because there is no easy way to drive from EVV to IND right now. After nearly 20 years of litigation, work began a week or two ago on the extension of I-69 from IND to EVV, but it will take nearly ten years to build the freeway.

I'm actually surprised that Cape Air hasn't spread its wings to additional communities including EAS opportunities.

Cape Air! Why don't you give the Pacific Northwest a shot sometime, give Kenmore Air Express a run for its money.

They've been trying like mad to increase their EAS services in the northeast, so I don't think they'll be trying other new markets anytime soon. Growth too fast is a sure way to sink an airline.



I'm the expert on here on two things, neither of which I care about much anymore.
