As most of you know I'm in Eugene, OR
(EUG). Well anyways, we currently have Horizon Air, America West Express (MESA) and United Express/ Skywest and Air Wisconsin. Up until December 28 or something,UA flew Mainline aircraft in here, and at one time operated 737s and 727s to DEN
. Now they are just CRJs. But this college town needs an additional airline. Despite the fact that roughly 51% of our residents annually fly out of PDX
, I think Frontier might do somewhat well out of here. Although most of our traffic supply is headed South, there is a Eastern market. Pre September 11th, Frontier had been talking about launching services to EUG, as well as "WinAir," however non of this went through. Well I really wish Frontier would come to Eugene, these regionals need some competition! But I am exited that soon AWE will be operating their CR7 to Eugene, along side QX
's three daily CR7 flights to LAX
. So what do you guys think? Could Frontier make it out here. Honestly, I'm not sure if they could right now, but in a year or so I really hope to see them flying here!
