Air service between "West" Trenton Mercer County Airport and Newark Airport does not make sense since Mercer County is so well served by NJ
Transit and Amtrak trains to Newark Airport, it would just add to congestion at Newark.
Princeton Jct (West Windsor), Princeton Borough, Hamilton and Trenton all have several trains each hour to Newark Airport on the Northeast Corridor. You can hop on the Dinky right inside Princeton University and take that to a Northeast Corridor train to Newark Airport faster than driving out to West Trenton and flying to Newark Airport, even though 'West" Trenton airport is right off 95 is not near the route 1 corridor or the Capital District.
Continental Connection flights to their hub in Albany makes sense, connecting the State Capitals of New York and New Jersey.
What Mercer County Officials should lobby for is air service to..
Chicago from one of the following UAL express, American Eagle, ATA Regional Affiliate at Midway.
Detroit, one of the following Spirit or NWA Regional Affiliate
Cleveland, Continental Connection/Express
Atlanta, one of the following Airtran or Delta Regional Affiliate
Orlando, one of the following Spirit, Airtan, USA 3000
Ft.Lauderdale, one of the following Spirit, Airtran or USA 3000
I think bringing in a CO
Connection carrier to EWR
to serve some routes COEX dropped when they retired their EM2 and ATR fleet is doable without casuing too much extra congestion, spread out the flights and try to dedicate them to runway 11/29.
COEX routes that were dropped when COEX transitioned to an all jet fleet..
Atlantic City, Islip, Bangor, Ithaca, Elmira, Binghamton, Marthas Vineyard, Harrisburg, New Haven.
