It would turn out just like in South Dakota when they had GP
Express fly to Spearfish,Pierre, Sioux Falls,etc. That did not last long because demand was low. That is probably why no one flew it to begin with.
I could see MN
contracting with, say Mesa, to fly BE1900s up there. It would beat starting their own state run outfit like California had discussed years ago.
So people in St. Cloud would have to drive all the way to MSP
? So what, it is only 72 freeway miles. Boy, what hardship!
Serve these cities: INL BJI HIB MKT ORT TVF BRD and maybe GPZ from MSP
With these routes:
I think three M-F,2 SaSu flights would be sufficient.
How much would each city have to pay to get service? And how would the taxpayers respond to paying for the service?
This sort of idea seems to never panout as proponents expect. Hopefully, if they do it, they will succeed. Assuming NW
doesn't pullout of any location with "MinnyAirways" service.
