Posted (4 years 11 months 4 days 20 hours ago) and read 5480 times:

So my parents just moved to the area, and I have been spending the summer down here. I am very interested in this airport because it seems to have a relatively large terminal (13 gates w/ jetways) and seems to serve an area with large demand (Metro Area: ~700,000 + Tourism) yet has very little service (Summer: 4 Airlines, 7 Destinations, 16 Frequencies).

Now I understand that it is currently the off season and service increases in the spring, but it still seems that the market could handle more service. Nevertheless, the market seems to suffer due to its proximity to TPA and RSW where there are many more options, frequencies, destinations, airlines, and most importantly, lower fares.

Despite all of this, what are the chances of expansion in the future? Is it possible that Continental, American, or USA 3000 will return? Could United or another LCC start up?

Also, considering the size of the terminal, and the fact that the current single concourse is named "Concourse B" (for future expansion A & C) it is evident that the airport authority expected future growth. Back in the day, or when the terminal was built how large were operations and how come such expected growth has not occured?

Lastly, like many airports the name includes "International". Did this airport ever have, or does anyone suspect it ever will have true international operations? (There is seasonal service to YYZ) I am aware that there are customs officers present, and according to the website, Gate 8 contains FIS- but is this facility large enough to handle a commercial flight? The reason I ask is that I have never been through it. Are there immigration desks/ custom facilities/ bag claims below the concourse. I have never seen the exit to such a facility in the land side area.

Anyway, if anyone has any input or answers to my questions about this airport, please write in.

I have flown into SRQ a few times in the past few years, but with TPA a close 55 miles up the road, I doubt you will see SRQ grow enough that they need to expand the terminal. Delta is probably the largest operator out of SRQ and in the winter sometimes puts 757’s on the run from ATL.

I have also wondered why the only concourse is named “B

You could see CO return in the form of E145's during the high season with trips to some of if not all of the HUB airports of CLE, EWR, and IAH. Not sure you'll ever see the return of the mainline for CO wtih the proximity to TPA and RSW that you mentioned in your original post.

I do remember the mid 80's where CO would bring a DC9-15 on the IAH-SRQ-FMY-IAH or the reverse FMY first then up the coast to SRQ....then in the later years prior to opening of RSW you may find a DC9-32 or a B727 making the run, those were fun times.

I enjoyed the leg between FMY and SRQ as I did quite a bit of PVT Pilot flying between FMY and SRQ as well as TPA back in the day. It really something to see the ole Seven Two Seven run that trip at 6,000' or 7,000' in a mostly Non-RADAR area at the time.

Like you said, they do get seasonal AC service to YYZ, on an E190. There seems to be a large Canadian population that comes down to SRQ in the winter, so I believe it does well. SRQ in general doesn't have a big enough population area to get its own international service. TPA will always lead the market in that. They may in the future be able to get a leisure/charter service from somewhere in the UK, ala RSW, but doubtful.

The last airport master plan for SRQ contained plans to build a terminal A as well as C, if the demand required so. It has not, but the plans were still in the master plan. AFAIK, they were in the process of writing a new master plan this spring, and I haven't seen the new one.

Wow. Sounds like someone was very optimistic when that terminal was designed and built! If my arithmetic is correct, 13 gates for 16 flights sounds like one flight per gate per day and 3 gates have to double-up on usage! There's lots of $$ tied up in jetways and concourses there and I imagine the airport could not possibly be self-sufficient cost-wise. Very interesting.

Does SRQ per chance see lots of diversions from TPA or even MCO or MIA?

As has already been mentioned, with 2 "neighboring" commercial airports quite close (plus it doesn't look like MCO is even that far away), I would expect the chances of any dramatic increases in service to be very slim. In fact, it sounds like it will take years for the area to even grow into the existing facilities! (Even at a very conservative 4 flights per gate each day, the present airport could easily handle well over 50 daily flights! (Most airports in the country would kill to have that kind of existing growth potential...)  Smile

Interesting.
A Lady from EWR area did a letter writing campaign for the return of CO to SRQ. The airline got very frustrated as they needed to answer over 700 letters to the CEO. I heard from the Dir. of Mktng at SRQ that CO staff were tired answering the letters.

The SRQ Dir. of Mktng told me that they believe that CO will eventually return after the economy rebounds as CO made somewhat of a mistake with closing stations. CO is paying $50,000/month rental through 2013 which means they didn't consider the $600,000 annual in fees when they left. I heard there were some very very very red faces when this was brought forward to the CEO. Dropping two flights into TPA would have had the same impact and not have cost nearly as much. At time of pull out TPA was yielding LOWER than SRQ to all CO hubs as well. The closing of SRQ occurred when fuel peeked at $145/bbl and as soon as they closed SRQ the price dropped $100. Go figure. If they can find a way to return they will do so because of the generous incentives.
SRQ is offering in the area of
$500,000 marketing and no fees to CO for the first year to bring in two flights in per day.
Similar offers for new destinations has been made to all airlines. A single operation per day would render $250,000 in incentives.

UA is allergic to Florida and has to fund the Taj in Chicago as well as the CEO compensation. They interestingly fly as a NON-SIG into RSW paying a whopping $14.00 per passenger more than signatory carriers! Obviously this explains why banks lend them money at 17.0%!

B6 may eventually add BOS to SRQ and FL will increase flights as possible with limited increase in fleet size. US could add something as well.

U5 could come back but that would be interesting in this economy.

Sarasota was one of the hardest hit real estate markets in the USA, with prices dropping over 50%, multi-million dollar homes going up for auction, etc.

People who used to come for holidays lost vacation homes, and the construction boom dried up. So it impacted travel.

Combine that with the high cost of fuel last year maybe RJ flying unprofitable, B6 entering from JFK driving yields down on the 737 service from EWR (I was getting $100 flights on that route), and CO cut all service to SRQ.

BUT - They are building two new hotels that border the airport (people in SRQ, not CO) and upsizing their convention center. Development will come back soon, and things will change. But the terminal is plenty big enough now. 1/2 the gates are unused currently.

I do hope CO returns to SRQ, as I would fly them again. As it is, I'm had to switch to DL. But if CO returned to SRQ, I'd switch back to CO+UA in a heartbeat, just to avoid connecting in ATL.

I don't think UA has been in SRQ since the mid 90s. I remember flying EWR-MCO-SRQ in 94 or 95. Then UA dropped its service EWR-MCO and I had to go EWR-IAD-(MCO)-SRQ. MCO was a stop no change of planes. When UA dropped SRQ 96 maybe and All service to RSW except from ORD. I had to switch to AA via Miami.

Sarasota-Bradenton is a wonderful metro area. Nice people, great beaches and good fishing. But there is not much industrial activity (Tropicana and L-3 Communications are the big dogs- and they are not as big in the area as they used to be). The real estate bust also hit the area especially hard.

The regional airport is roughly an hour to TPA and RSW, both of which have good mainline service. It is even (drive time) closer to PIE, which offers cheap flights from Allegiant.

TPA does take an hour but RSW takes more like 1:30-1:45. As far as who goes where, From 20 miles south of Ocala to Tampa will go to Tampa. Ocala goes to Orlando. From Tampa to Venice, FL most people go to TPA, Some people see if there is a comparable fare and schedule from SRQ but usually there is not. North Port, FL south goes to RSW

When the current SRQ terminal opened in 1989, there was a Concourse A. The A gates were located directly east of the ticketing area in the landside area and was used for commuter flights. Concourse B was expanded a few years later and I think the A gates were closed when the B expansion was complete.

My first flight was on a CO 737-100 from SRQ to EWR in 1990. For some reason, we boarded via airstairs instead of using the jetway...it was awesome.

SRQ does suffer from TPA being so close. AirTran's entrance has helped bring the fares down and now from here in ATL the fares are almost always the same as those to TPA. I imagine that is the case to other destinations as well. I flew in/out of SRQ for the first time in years recently. My parents live in southernmost St. Pete and I normally fly into TPA, but decided to try SRQ. My mom actually prefers the drive down there since there is less traffic and having sat in traffic twice trying to get from St. Pete to TPA to catch a flight...there is some value with flying out of SRQ.

SRQ does suffer being so close to TPA. There are many nonstop options from TPA and it's a great airport. Also, for folks that do not live directly near the airport, the airport is a bit of a hike from Interstate 75, and by the time someone exits and takes University Parkway there, they could literally only be 15 minutes or so from TPA (provided not during peak traffic).

As is the southwest Florida coast. Saw homes with 60% less value even yesterday when I was in Ft. Myers/Naples area. RSW was like a ghost town even for this time of year, but the CO flight back to IAH was 100% full.

Most of the majors served SRQ at one point. Some of the past service included:

UA to MCO (757 service) (early 90's)
TW to STL (via RSW at first, then nonstop through the late 90's)
AA mainline to RDU, AA Eagle to MIA
CO to EWR and IAH
US mainline to CLT, PHL and PIT (now RJ service to CLT and DCA)

NW still has seasonal service to DTW. I imagine DL will keep it.

I remember DL had a 757 flight that went SRQ-TPA-DFW in the mid 90's. I don't think it lasted very long.

I do a fair amount of traveling from Southwestern Connecticut to SRQ, either I fly DL from LGA to TPA and drive an hour to Sarasota, or go through ATL and fly direct into SRQ, depends on the airfares and car rental rates. Delta’s ATL-SRQ flights are always almost totally booked and in the winter DL even switches from a MD-88 to a 757 on some flights to accommodates the extra loads.

The door to door travel time is almost the same, but I would rather avoid ATL if I can. I have tried JetBlue’s JFK-SRQ flights, but JFK is just a pain in the a$$ so it is easier for us to fly out of LGA, which is more convenient for us.

I first started flying into SRQ in the JetStar in the early 1970’s and have seen SRQ change from when it was a converted US Army Air Corps military base and even still had some of the old wartime buildings and a 6000 foot runway into a nice large modern airport. The entrance to the airport then from HWY 41 was on General Spaatz Blvd, not University Parkway as it is today.

A few years ago, in an article in USA Today, the Sarasota Bradenton area was rated the fastest appreciation of property in the country, in the area of 30 to 40 percent a year, which attracted a lot of investors, so it stands to reason the area now has taken a large hit in property values. But so many other high growth areas in the country, Las Vegas, Phoenix and others have been hit as hard as well.

According to the 1993 master plan (The latest one they had when I inquired in the spring), they were to be what I would describe as additional piers. There were essentially three plans:

Plan one involved adding airside A and airside C. Airside A would have been located west of the current airside B, and would have been built with 5 gates, each designed with a Boeing 757-200 sized aircraft in mind. Airside C, built east of the current airside B, would have also been a 5 gate facility, to accommodate 757-200's. Also included would have been an international arrivals hall, containing FIS and whatnot, as well as additional baggage area, and an additional ticketing area.

Plan two was essentially the same thing, but only moving the location of the new international arrivals hall.

Plan three was nearly the same. The proposed airside A (West of the current airside) would have held 4 gates, and the proposed airside C would have had 6 gates. Again, there would have been a new international arrivals hall, and additional ticking and baggage space.

That's correct. They were (and remain) a signatory airline, with the airport board. So, they have to pay the monthly amount to the airport, regardless of usage, for the duration of the contract.

As far as I can remember, about 7 years ago, there was still signage for a concourse/airside A. I believe the only people who used it were Air Sunshine, although I never did see a single plane operate on their behalf out of there.

I used to fly a lot to SRQ between 1990 and 1996, and since then service really has decreased. I had used DL via ATL and CVG, AA via RDU and MIA.

On top of all the flights that TLHFLA mentioned, it is also worth noting that DL flew there eight times a day, all flights operated by a 757.

What is funny though is that the heyday of SRQ airport was in the 90s, well before the real estate boom. I had the impression that between around 1995 and the 2000 real estate boom years there was a real slump. Less flights, tourism stagnating, and even the shops on St. Armand Circle went from "upmarket" to "mass market". When the rebound came in the 2000s, I was surprised not to see more flights coming back to SRQ.

Does anyone know if there currently is an international arrivals hall? According to the airport's website there's "FIS" located at gate 8 (I assume underneath the concourse) but I'm not sure whether it is a full facility, and I have never seen an exit from it in the arrivals area.

Usually, there is. At least in the past few years, once SRQ lowered their fees, it's been a toss up most of the time.

And for me, if I go to SRQ, I don't need to rent a car because family lives 5 minutes away. But at TPA, that's rental, and at the holiday times, they charge $500 a week or more ($125 a week other times). Bastages...

Now I understand that it is currently the off season and service increases in the spring

Florida is VERY hot and muggy during the summertime, as you must know living down there. In addition to the sweltering heat, you have plenty of mosquitoes and hurricanes to deal with. The wintertime offers much more pleasant living conditions; as such, a large number of homeowners and tourists only live in/visit Florida during that time of year. No different than Vail and Steamboat Springs seeing dramatically less service during the Spring, Summer, and Fall than during the Winter ski season.

Quoting COERJ (Thread starter):
it still seems that the market could handle more service

Even if the demand for more flights is there, many airlines may find it redundant to fly separate flights to TPA, SRQ, and RSW...being the smallest market and sandwiched in the middle of the larger two, SRQ is at a disadvantage.

Quoting COERJ (Thread starter):
Nevertheless, the market seems to suffer due to its proximity to TPA and RSW where there are many more options, frequencies, destinations, airlines, and most importantly, lower fares.

You do have more options, but flying into RSW is NOT cheap. My parents are living down in Fort Myers, and many of the cheapest flight options actually involve flying DL into SRQ...

Quoting COERJ (Thread starter):
Continental

The most likely to return. They have a huge Florida presence, and seem to do fairly well from smaller markets such as DAB that don't see much legacy service.

Quoting COERJ (Thread starter):
American

As MIA and DFW both continue to grow, I could definitely see SRQ on their radar. After all, if Manhattan, Kansas and Roswell, New Mexico can support DFW flights, I'm sure Sarasota could too...

Quoting COERJ (Thread starter):
USA 3000

This airline is still fairly new and trying to find its niche. NK began serving domestic markets such as Atlantic City and Myrtle Beach at first, only to shift into the international flying and a true FLL hub. I wouldn't wait for them to return.

Quoting COERJ (Thread starter):
United

If PBI and FLL aren't worthy enough for this airline, SRQ stands NO chance.

Quoting COERJ (Thread starter):
another LCC

Possibly. But even Skybus opted for more "remote" Punta Gorda and St. Augustine. Even SRQ was too mainstream I suppose. WN also seems like a remote possibility, given that it hasn't done much out of RSW and PBI, the smallest Florida markets it serves.

I would say the chances are way beyond remote -- maybe zero. With service at RSW, TPA and MCO? Yep, zero.

Given the amount of space at SRQ, and the lack of flights (and thus, pax, and thus, income to the airport), I really wonder what the airline costs are to op out of there? (It's been touched on in this thread and pardon me if someone gave details which I missed.) I wonder if this could be part of the reason for the lack of service at Sarasota vs nearby airports?

And it was one of those flights that's so early in the morning, only business travelers would use it. The other way, often connections were so long in MIA, it was almost as fast to drive MIA-SRQ instead. In fact, I did this one time. LAX-MIA-SRQ driving to SRQ.
