Looks like Allegiant would like to surround SEA. First PAE now PWT.

The Port of Bremerton is involved in the early stages of considering whether it could reintroduce flights out of the South Kitsap airport that last saw regular commercial trips in 1999.

Charlie Riordan from the Kansas City-based small airport consulting firm BWR Corp. said at a port commissioners meeting Tuesday that markets similar to Bremerton's have typically gone with airlines traveling to major hubs such as Salt Lake City or San Francisco.

Allegiant Airlines, though, is interested in the possibility of flying twice a week between Bremerton and Las Vegas.

What airline used to serve PWT back in 1999? Was it Northwest Seaplanes with Cessna 208's or maybe Harbor Air with Cessna 208's?

That would be pretty wild to have Maddogs flying into PWT. I think G4 should consider Olympia-LAS. I'm sure it's possible. Olympia's runway is 5501 X 150 and Orange County's runway is 5701 X 150. AA flies MD-80's between SNA and STL. G4 could easily do Olympia-LAS or Mesa easy with MD-80's.

I was just over that way visiting friends for the weekend, and saw the airport for the first time in many years. I commented to my wife that it would seem like an interesting option for someone to fly out of, such as DLConn CRj-200's to SLC, or QX Q400's to PDX. I think Allegiant crossed my mind, but not knowing how long the runways were I figured it might be tight.

The area is certainly growing over there, and there is a large military presence which would hopefully feed any new venture, but the biggest selling point is the distance and traffic getting to SEA. Between I-5, the Narrows Bridge/Hwy 16, and distance/traffic, a PWT alternative might be attractive.

I also like the idea of Olympia. Again, DLConn via SLC or perhaps QX Q400 to GEG or PDX/SEA. Anyhow, lots of neat ideas are propping up.  Smile

Wow, I remember PWT well....I used to fly out of there as a kid...about 15 minutes from the Bremerton Navy shipyard, and maybe 25 to Bangor Sub base. Back in those days you could fly over the mothball fleet or the subs without any problem. Not so much anymore.

I remember back in the mid 90's the terminal was somewhat set up like it had once served an airline, between checkin counters and the like. A hop or two during the week into there would make some good revenue, as PlanesNTrains said it's a long and frustrating hike to SEA from western washington.

Not a bad option for those living at Bainbridge Island and other parts of Kitsap and the western side of the sound. There also is a nice restaurant at the field serving 'Aviator' beer ...

I am not sure if there will be enough demand for traffic there.. Also, does the airport have Fire and Rescue? This is a requirement for P121 operations.
I think PAE has much more potential if it wasn't for the NIMBYs.
