Hey, all. A couple days ago in the Puerto Rico newspaper El Nuevo Día, there was an article about a proposed lengthening of PSE's runway of an extra 1,000 feet, provided that the local environmental agency (Recursos Naturales) can move a small river and a watering system out of the way. The reason for this is to try and drum up some more operations for the underused airport which runs at a loss of $3 million a year.
Now my question is; has something like this actually worked before? PSE's 6,904-foot runway is already capable of jet service so I'm just wondering how a 7,904-foot runway is going to do any better at getting service to that airport. Anyone?
Edit: PSE is Ponce Mercedita Airport in Ponce, PR. I forget that the name doesn't show up when you put the cursor over the code. Sorry.
