It has been reported today that Allegiant that serves YNG has agreed on to a 10 year agreement with the regional airport. This deal locks in certain airport fees charged to Allegiant. Some of these collected fees could help in terminal improvements. It also increases the chances of additional routes out of YNG via the Las Vegas carrier.

On a side note tomorrow the newly hired Airport Director Dan Dickten will meet with a legacy carrier in the hope of acquiring service to ORD and/or IAD. I am sure further positive developments will follow as this new Airport Director has shown high motivation in his job since he took over.

Okay, so it guarantees fees at a certain level for G4 for 10 years.... But does it guarantee that G4 will continue to serve YNG for the duration of that time?


Finally made it to an airline mecca!

Congrats to YNG reaching an agreement with G4. I'd be curious to know if the agreement provides for expansion of service, or places a requirement on them to expand? If they don't maintain a minimum level of service, is there a penalty to G4?

This agreement may keep other service from coming to YNG, however. Most fees are "abated" for the 10 year period. Why would another carrier enter the market unless they were given a similar deal? Scheduled daily service to a hub just got harder to land....

Without the ability to read the signed documents it will be difficult to fairly answer your question. However I'll bet that the high loads that Allegiant is getting at YNG played heavily into this decision. We all know that Allegiant won't hang around if conditions fall off so there probably is an escape clause should local economic conditions cause such a passenger drop off.

The agreement should be public record. Maybe YNGuins can get a copy and report back to us....

No way, G4 would never do such a thing.

Dickten said he would be joined on what he characterized as the initial meeting by Eric Planey, vice president of international business attraction at the Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber; Don Taylor, general manager and vice president of operators for Winner Aviation, the airport's fixed-base operator; and possibly Scott Lynn, the port authority's chairman.

What a concept...a bunch of people getting together to talk airline service...not just the people who actually run the joint.

I do not know if you are being sarcastic or not. I have no access to any such agreement and would never disclose of it if I did. I will see what I can find out. Judging by the Chicago-DC mention in that article, I think it is a no brainer that they are talking with United. That route, is something that most on here, and in the Mahoning Valley believe, would be the best for daily service from our area. Let's hope it happens.

Ehh...In a way I am. It's more of a dig at the TLCPA that has nothing but closed door meetings and back door dealings. I am saying this is a very good thing the community is (and is allowed to) getting involved.

When you get used to Ryan you will eventually watch him react to airport administrations that seek to fulfill a goal in contrast to a particular airport administration of which he is all to familiar with that is satisfied with the status quo. Therefore his statements are always contrasting the two methods of administration.
