is considered a success. The basic airport infrastructure was a virtual "gift" from the US Navy. The subsequent terminal, runway and ramp improvements are specifically designed to accommodate European charter operators and the bonds floated to pay for them are being serviced without tapping into general revenues. As Skymonster pointed out, SFB
has weekend peaks, where A330s, 767s, et. al. swarm SFB
's ramp area.
The Greeneway (SR 417 expressway) allows SFB
passengers to reach Orlando's resort areas in just 45 minutes, which is fine for overseas charter passengers. While there is a large suburban population around SFB
, the Greeneway allows those commuters to reach MCO
is less than 30 minutes, so the demand for domestic service at SFB
is light. Why pay higher fares for fewer choices of flights out of SFB
has some of the lowest fares in the country and a host of direct flight offerings?
