Sanford (SFB), Will They Expand?

Tue Jun 06, 2006 8:31 am

Will Sanford (SFB) ever expand or do they not have the traffic to support such an effort? As far as expansion, they (those whoever is in charge down there) could expand 9R/27L (in length and width) to parallel 9L/27R and make the terminal area a "Mid-Field Terminal."

I know most of their commercial flights right now are European, but having a parallel could attract more business.  twocents 

Are most passenger flights in and out of SFB have passengers going to the east coast (The Cape, Daytona, etc) or are they going to Orlando for the sights and attraction there?

Quoting Tiger119 (Thread starter):

What? Explain this "extra runway = more business" theory.

Work is beginning on lengthening 9L/27R and adding more ramp space east of the international terminal. There is also a parking garage under construction. Infrastructure is already there, and alot of work has been done to bring in more sked service. Not much more that can be done other than to lure in more int'l charters and maybe the remote chance of domestice service.

SFB has done a pretty good job of getting what's already there.
