Re: Frontier to start service to Portland, Maine

Who flew Delaware to Denver? :confused: F9 did ILG-DEN for a summer...I think 2013. I flew MDW-TTN and ILG-MDW the next day and loved it. Both ILG and TTN are great little airports. I'm really surprised G4 has never made a go of ILG....and CEF for that matter. There is ZERO need for service at CEF ...

Re: How about Salem (SLE)?

I agree with others that SLE is fairly ripe for service. The most likely candidates, IMO, would be AS or DL to SEA. That said, AS or DL aren’t just going to show up on Salem’s doorstep with arms open. It’ll take city leaders trying to woo one or the other, likely with incentives. I agree with that,...

Re: How about Salem (SLE)?

Did DL on a CR2 have to take weight restrictions to SLC with a 5800 foot runway?

2-3x daily on a Horizon Q400 could work to SEA. It would be a resumption of service after probably 30 years.
