The 2010 SCAD applications are starting to be posted publicly. Here's some of the more interesting ones posted so far. They are being posted in alphabetical order and all should start showing up I assume by day's end, if not in the next day or two. So far only three involve specific service:

*Bangor, Maine for United Express to Washington-Dulles and/or Chicago-O'Hare.
*Carlsbad, California for Horizon to San Jose.
*Dotham, Alabama for American Eagle to Dallas.

With registration, you can read applications at www.airlineinfo.com. They will also post at regulations.gov, but that the user interface/search is horrendous.

Below are the proposals so far (sorted by State).

Alabama
o Dothan Regional Airport is proposing a grant in the amount of $750,000 to supplement community and airport in-kind funding to provide a minimum revenue guarantee and marketing support for service between Dothan and Dallas/Ft. Worth on 50-seat regional jets operated by American Eagle.

o Montgomery is applying for a SCASD grant in the amount of $400,000 to be matched with $100,000 in airport dollars and $50,000 of “in-kind” contributions to fund a comprehensive market study, and a marketing and promotional plan supporting new and expanded air service that may be recruited.

Alaska
o Community of Diomede is requesting a three year grant in the total amount of $1,250,000 to offer consistent air service. The community has never had scheduled air service, and in recent past, relied upon weekly service from Evergreen Helicopters, Inc.

Arizona
o Yuma International Airport and its community partners are requesting a grant in the amount of $400,000 to provide risk mitigation funds to support development of service to an additional airline connecting hub over a two year period.

California
o McClellan-Palomar Airport seeks a grant, in the amount of $500,000, to help mitigate proposed risk in launching service in an unproven market by Horizon Air which proposes twice daily service to San Jose (kinda interesting they have CP Air starting up in their backyard with planned flights to SJC, and they pursue a SCASD grant with Horizon instead).

o Crescent City request $600,000 subsidy to support twice daily United Express service to San Francisco. Crescent City was awarded EAS flying in May 2010, but due to change in service patterns(from SMF to SFO) request the funds to target marketing for the airport to ensure the success of the UA services and minimize the diversion of flyers to other airports and transportation means.

o Modesto request for $500,000 in funding matched by $215,300 of airport and community in-kind funding for revenue guarantees($450,000), marketing and start-up cost offset for proposed twice daily Horizon Air service to Portland or Seattle.

Maine
o Auburn-Lewiston Municipal Airport request $500,000 in funding for revenue guarantees for the cities first access to the national air transportation system with proposed service to Boston on Cape Air.

o Bangor International Airport and the community are requesting a grant in the amount of $500,000 watched by $250,000 in community funds that will be used to promote service to national hub, with targeted service offered by United Airlines to Chicago and or Washington Dulles Airport.

Good luck with this one. With a subsidized WN operating in ECP only 60 miles away and potentially WN operating out of PNS, VPS has little hope of getting an LCC.

o Evansville Regional Airport seeks $500,000 to provide start up cost and revenue guarantees in support of new low-fare scheduled air service to Baltimore on AirTran utilizing B717 equipment.

I have a feeling this application is toast with the WN/FL merger and WN's sizable SDF ops 1 1/2 hours away.

Great "outside-the-box" thinking by FWA. CUTE/CUPPS facilities there could greatly increase gate usage and ticket counter efficiency at FWA.

Right now, DL/UA/Regional Elite use Gates 3-6 (2 jetway, 2 ground-level) and Eagle/G4 use Gates 7/8 (both with jetways; 7 also used by Regional Elite). At the same time, ground-level gates 1 and 2 are empty, even though Gate 2 was improved six years ago with a Commute-A-Walk just for TZ/C8. And there's 5 1/2 blocks of ticket counter spaces at FWA: Delta has 2 1/2, United Express has 1, Eagle/G4 has 1. Why does Regional Elite need 3 1/2 spaces for DL and UA when 2 would do? There's also a vacant space, last used by Business Aviation back when they and not Eagle did G4 ground...

We used to do family roadtrips to Escanaba. And I've visited ESC before: an underutilized, yet nice facility that was served by UA and NW (and later Skyway). Hopefully ESC can retain its DTW/MSP service while and after DL Conenction pull the SAABs.

Remember so far there are almost 60-odd applications in the pot, with the DOT only going to award about 10-15 of them, so Horizon landing more then 1 is rather slim.

At the end of the day there really is no risk for the airline to go along with these applications.

Probably a lot.

BTW, I noticed only one SCASD application with a laser-like focus on AirTran (EVV). I also saw a lot of UA/CO new service/service expansion applications. This is the inverse of last year, where airports were falling head over heels to get FL and not UA. Maybe these airports were either anticipating a WN/FL merger, or realized the value that a merged UA/CO will have?

Brunswick sits smack in the middle between JAX and SAV, so I see why they would have competition but I don't see why, with FLETC traffic and Sea Island traffic they need a federal grant to make it work. THey have what, 3 flights a day? And they can't fill them with high yield gov't and Sea Island traffic?

Most likely, the grant application was written and submitted before G4 announced their intent to enter the SAV-FLL market.

Allegiant Air does not really help anyone beyond the p2p market they might be in. The Savannah application actually makes mention of Allegiant specifically and would provide them with marketing assistance and waiver of airport fees but views them as an inbound traffic generator, not true solution for the community.

Instead Savannah would like to pursue a network like LCC to replace AirTran and makes specific mention of someone like JetBlue providing links to NYC or BOS two of the larger SAV markets with lots of beyond connectivity options from there.

o Auburn-Lewiston Municipal Airport request $500,000 in funding for revenue guarantees for the cities first access to the national air transportation system with proposed service to Boston on Cape Air.

Nothing about Auburn from the DOT, but there was this tidbit in a PDF I am having trouble linking:

Summary
By this order, the Department is selecting Hyannis Air Service, Inc., operating as Cape Air
(Cape Air), to provide essential air service (EAS) at Augusta/Waterville and Rockland,
Maine, for the four-year period from November 1, 2010 to October 31, 2014, for a
combined annual subsidy of $2,783,161, and Colgan Air Inc., operating as US Airways
Express (Colgan Air), to provide EAS at Bar Harbor, Maine, for the two-year period from
November 1, 2010 to October 31, 2012, for an annual subsidy of $2,298,533.1

Rockland is already part of the 9K system, but Augusta is new.

Two things:
Nice to see a 4 year bid as opposed to usual 2.
And Augusta should see more flights and better schedules with Cape Air and 402s compared to Colgan SAABs. I visited Augusta Airport in May and was interested that the building is also the Greyhound terminal.
Hopefully 9K does well in Augusta.

o St. Joseph County Airport Authority in South Bend seek $750,000 in grant funding supplemented by $525,000 airport funding to develop nonstop service to a Western hub airport to alleviate the lack of service and higher fares from the region. Initial interest from Frontier Airlines to provide a single daily flight to Denver utilizing Embraer 190.

Looks like F9 is already interested in SBN-DEN, and that's a good thing. But how about UA instead? UA is strong in SBN (#2 behind DL), with 6 UAX RJs, some of them CR7s with explus, to ORD. My only fear is that either F9 or UA SBN-DEN might cannibalize Eagle's FWA-DFW (currently 2x daily, was 3x daily at one time or another in the past).



I don't work for FWA, their tenants, or their ad agency. But I still love FWA.
25 LAXintl : Why would it never happen? Kinston already held discussions with United hence this request Federal funding. United has even provided proposed schedul
26 FlyPNS1 : Maybe so, but ISO just isn't a good market. DL tried it with RJ's to ATL and it failed miserably and the economy was far better and fuel prices were
27 LAXintl : More for today.... Kansas o Metropolitan Topeka Airport Authority request $500,000 in grant funding to reestablish air service to link Topeka and east
28 LAXintl : Nebraska o Lincoln Airport Authority proposes a $500,000 grant, matched by $130,000 in local funds to provide revenue guarantees to encourage air carr
29 mtnwest1979 : They can't actually be serious as to state it is convenient to fly to DEN, then connect to LAS, LAX, and SFO are they? Only a clueless person would d
30 StuckInCA : That makes as much sense as throwing $520k on the ground and setting it on fire.
31 mariner : Perhaps both of us are reading it the wrong way, because it doesn't quite make sense to me, either. I think service service Provo (PVU)-DEN is a pret
32 ERJ170 : No offense, but I would rather see the following.. Coastal Carolina Regional Airport ask for $500,000 in grant funding supported by $50,000 local fun
33 LAXintl : The application and support letters from community groups state over and over that the community is looking for direct air service to Las Vegas, Los
34 mariner : That seems fair enough to me. mariner
35 CO2BGR : Yes, Bar Harbor flew there. Thats where the crash that killed Samantha Smith was.
36 AVLAirlineFreq : Is it just me, or is it strange to see Albany here amongst the truly small communities? Does ALB have leakage issues, and to where? NYC?
37 txjim : I admit I don't know the area that well but why whould they seek service to Boeing Field instead of SEA? I see that SeaPort Airlines already has twic
38 kstateinALB : The way New York State is operating right now, I'm not surprised they are asking for money...
39 kstateinALB : Topeka would be a great addition to the UA network if added. I could see it supplanting the service from ORD to MHK if it were successful. MHK has ha
40 LAXintl : Vermont o Burlington International Airport seeks Federal grant in the amount of $200,000 matched with $100,000 local funds to implement marketing prog
41 mariner : I'm not a betting man, but if I were to take a punt on any of these applications I'd probably lay a few bucks on this one going through. But it would
42 LAXintl : With 70 odd applications who knows what the DOT will do. But from history however they tend to spread the awards out across the country so states like
43 mtnwest1979 : The main reason for BFI is a) cheaper costs, b) traffic they are aiming for is O & D to Seattle area and BFI is easier than SEA for pax. As for K
44 toltommy : UA may look at SBN much the same way NW looked at TOL. Enough seats to satisfy local demand, knowing that the majority of their customers will drive
