Interesting Tidbit: Cape Air @ Manteo, NC 1999

I was just reading the thread about Cape Air at St Louis and wondered if they ever had a NC presence. To my astonishment, Cape Air did in fact fly in NC.

From March 1999 to January 2000, Cape air offered scheduled air service between Manteo, NC (Outer Banks) to Norfolk, VA (ORF).

Now, though I am sure it was a lot of hoopla for Manteo, my question is why would they offer service from Norfolk and not RDU? Seems to me that more people from Norfolk would drive to the outer banks than from the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area. I know that when I have driven from Raleigh, it takes over 4 hours.. but from Norfolk only about 1-ish.

So, the question is.. would it be feasible for Cape Air (or another similar airline) to provide service between RDU (and maybe GSO/CLT) to Manteo (MQI/KMEO)?

Thanks for any input..


Aiming High and going far..
