Small Airports On The Rise

Sun Jun 11, 2006 4:07 pm

I was just wondering, what airports that are considered smaller airports are starting to get more serivce? Are there some airports starting to get some mainline aircraft now? More frequencies? I know for the small town airports it is always a happy time to hear things about your local airport.

For example for me is FAT. We get the A319 with HP right now to LAS and we get the A318 with Mexicana Airlines! An international route was awesome to hear.

Anything similar or just good news to come for your local airports?

Nothing that good...in ACY we recently got our DTW connection back on NK with a A319, and DL started ATL a couple days ago with a CRJ (ASA)

Flint is a very small airport, but NWA mainline (plus pinnacle and mesaba) fly in and out. Delta thru Comair, Midwest through their sub Skywest, Continental to Cleveland, AirTran, and now American to Chicago via American Eagle.

Flint is one of the nicest, and most successful airports in the US

In Puerto Rico, BQN and PSE have lately been getting new service. IMO Delta should upgrade the ATL-BQN flights to 737-800s.

I thought Delta had service plans to PSE. Have those plans been cancelled?

EDIT: Oh, PSE service is only on Saturdays.

GPT was slowly on the rise prior to Katrina. Since then traffic has returned back to normal traffic levels, and with the return of the airtran florida flights, will be above Katrina levels. I expect new and expanded service from new and existing airlines in the not too distant future.

Just look at the Allegiant route map.

That one airline has brought more mainline service to small airports than anyone since the RJ revolution decimated mainline flying at small stations.

Hamilton Ontario, is starting to get more charters, as well as increaded scheduled service from both Air Canada and Westjet. As Pearson continues to get more expensive, look for carriers to begin to start more services from Hamilton. Which is only about a 45 minute drive from Toronto.

Cheers,

MFE is on the rise here in the Rio Grande Valley, aside from HRL and BRO. Frequency wise, CO just added 2 more flights a day (couple of months ago). ASA(DL) added daily flights to ATL(Couple of months ago), and G4 just last week started flying to SFB.

I could possible see that happening, they could use London, Kitchener-Waterloo as well. Which are decent sized markets, with good access (401) to Toronto.

WN could also use some of the smaller airports in other Metropolitan Canadian Cities. But i think they have some bigger fish to fry in the United States first. I would not expect this until WN beleives they have exhausted all their American destinations.

Those destinations and markets are now very low in number and few and far between; CLT, MSP, CVG, ATL. Ideally there are at least 4 Canadian markets WN should be eyeballing right now for possible expansion in to over the next 2-3 years; Toronto, Montreal, Vancouver and Calgary. There is a very high volume of trans-49th traffic between these four markets and many of the markets they currently serve south of the 49th.

FAR now has 8 NW mainline flights, 4 CRJ to DEN, 4 to ORD, 3 G4 to LAS per week, , 2 CRJ to SLC. The airport director believes that additional carriers will be entering the market soon, plus possibly additional cities (DTW?) on NW.

I want to speak about a small airport, EWN (Craven Regional Aiport - New Bern, NC). The 2004 boardings was 88,349. I think their boardings for 2005 went up by either 2.? or 3.?%. They have a new terminal built within the past 5 years with 3 gates. They are currently only served by US Airways, 7x daily service to CLT (with another being added in August) and Sat service to PHL. Although that is good service, could at least 1 or 2 more airlines find EWN as an opportunity and offer service to at least NYC, WAS, or another hub airport?

What does the general audience think? Is more service warrant or is the current service more than sufficient. Just wondering..

BTW.. fares out of New Bern range between $400+ to $900+ depending on your domesticate destination

SGF is on the rise. Almost exclusively regional needle jets with AA, US and DL. However, G4 is providing mainline service to LAS and Orlando Sanford.

The city recently broke ground on a new midfield terminal. Right now, we have service to ORD, DEN, LAS, DFW, MEM, ATL, CVG, DTW and Orlando (Sanford). We just lost service to STL.

I forgot MSP. I knew I was forgetting one. Yes, MEM is now all CRJs. They used to fly in BAE146s and DC-9s. Back in the day, we'd see 146s, DC-9s, 737s, in addition to the smaller turboprops. Then the needle jets arrived and away went all of the variety.

RIC is a medium-sized airport on the rise. IIRC, The Richmond Times Dispatch recently reported traffic for April was up over 20% over April the previous year. We have new service to Boston, New York-Kennedy both on JetBlue and Delta (JFK-only). AirTran started service again last year with new B717s. All this in the middle of a massive terminal expansion including the current revamping of all concessions. We're going to have Applebee's in the main concourse before security!

See the stats, maps and graphics of the terminal expansion and more at:

I remember UAX flying EAT/YKM/PSC to SEA. Now all that service is gone. With added passenger demand in PSC flying out other than to SEA, i expect this to grow. PSC has many non-stops to other cities besides SEA. Non-stop to Las, Vegas, SLC, and DEN. Why live in YKM and fly or drive to SEA when it's a short drive away to PSC? But for EAT (Wenatchee, Wa) i wish there were more than one carrier and they still have only 4 flights per day, down from 5. Robert NWDC10

BLI (bellingham, wa)

Not too long ago, it was only served by QX. But now, Skywest (delta connection) just began flying out of there on Thursday the 8th to SLC. Allegiant flys to LAS (i think daily now), and of course Horizon with their Q-200's (not new, but still going strong). Skywest had been serviced with United Express to SEA but didnt survive the sept 11th cuts.

Here in CID we just started DL (ASA) service to ATL. All jet service has returned as well to STL on the ERJ's and last December we got the Orlando SFB service on G4 to compliment the very successful LAS service. The terminal seems busy all the time. We are now up to 10 non stop destinations- MSP, DTW, ORD, DFW, STL, DEN, LAS, SFB, ATL, CVG.

Well , then I'll toss in Idaho Falls,ID as well.
New UA Express to DEN twice/day gives them a few more Eastbound connections w/o going thru SLC.
NW Airlink/Pinnacle with their 1x to MSP
G4 and their 2x week to LAS. Nice to see 'big' planes there again.
And of course usual Horizon Dash-8s to Boise (3x day)and SkyWest rjs to SLC( 7x/day, I think.)

This should be the constant for awhile, if all goes well.

Here at ACV air service has downsized a little but improved a little as well. When I first moved here 5 years ago, UA Express flew something like 12 flights a day to SFO, 2 flights to SMF, 2 a day to CEC and several flight up to PDX.

QX flew offered 3 flights a day on the SEA-PDX-ACV-RDD-PDX-SEA or SEA-PDX-RDD-ACV-PDX-SEA triangle. That all changed after 9-11. First thing UA Express did was drop the flights up to PDX and gave in to QX.

UA Express flies the noisy and cramped EMB-120 up here. They did fly a couple of CRJ a day up here from SFO for a while but that ended a little over a year ago. I hate the EMB-120's with a passion...... My hearing is going out........ QX hs been flying Dash 8-400's into ACV for several years now. I love those planes.

Now UA Express offers only 6 flights a day to SFO and the 2 flights that connect SMF-ACV-CEC still operate.

QX is down to 1 flight a day up to PDX and SEA. Airfares up to SEA on QX are now over $300 rt so I mostly drive (10-13 hours) or fly UA if I can get a flight via SFO for $230. QX used to offer airfares to SEA for @ $200 and I flew that run all the time. I have not flown north on QX in almost 2 years because the price of tickets have gone up to a point that I just drive. But QX now flies down to LAX non-stop or with a stop in RDD. You can usually get a ticket on QX for $230 if you shop early. I have wanted to fly that new route but have not done so yet. I flew UA down to LAX last month because they offered more flights each day plus I landed a ticket for $230. Didn't want to sit in LAX for 7 hours waiting for the 9pm QX flight after a 12 hour flight from HKG. With UA I was able to catch a connecting flight in less than 3 hours.

But hey, that is the price for living in paradise... on this narrow strip of land between redwood forests and the Pacific Ocean....

Today saw the start of ASA nonstop to ATL as well as two Comair CRJ's to CVG.

Northwest will add another DC9 on July 1, for a grand total of 1x SF34, 1x A319,1x A320, 4x DC9 srs.

UA Express is flying 3x CRJ2's and 2x CRJ7's into TVC, dont forget about American Eagle with their ERJ's to ORD and LGA (Weekends).

MFR is undergoing significant change. The tiny terminal will give way to a larger state of the art facility with 3 to 4 upper level jetways by 2009. Also a new stand alone tower will replace the current short tower above the exisitng terminal. Eventally, plans may call for an extention of runway 14/32 from 8800 to 10,000 ft and the relocation of the crosswinds runway to a parallel configuration.

Currently, UAX/Skywest offers service to PDX, DEN, and SFO. QX flies to SEA, EUG, and PDX. Delta Connection (Skywest) flies to SLC. US Airways Exppress(Mesa) offers service to LAS and PHX.

Hopefuly with the improved facilities more Rogue Valley travellers will see MFR as a viable airport!

I will add SRQ to this list.
20 consecutive months of increases in traffic, with major increases since Dec 2004 when AirTran arrived. The airport is still no where near it's 1997 numbers but a recovery none the less. Also the DOT just issued UsAirways two DCA slots, so that is an additional Ejet in the summer and a bus in the winter and a new destination. Hopefully AAE returns and NWA increases services. I wish another carrier would offer year-round services.

Is there a chance that soon other carriers will start serving FLG?
Maybe QX or UA Express to LAX?

CRP courted FL about 3 years ago to run service from ATL, when ASA was looking to pull out. ASA has remained here, but its CRJ. CRP could stand for service to other cities besides DFW, IAH, HOU or ATL. Years ago UA had an add-on leg from AUS that came thru from DEN. It would be nice to have some sort of westbound service from here that avoided DFW or IAH. The terminal is only 3 years old, and has plenty of room for another carrier.
A line is evidence that other people exist.

I would have to add Norfolk International Airport (KORF) we have service from AA, CO, DL, WN, NW, UA, & US. Cargo Ops FedEx, UPS, and DHL.

-Main runway 9000ft (5-23) with plans on adding an additional parallel runway of 7000ft (5R-23L) and plans on increasing the crosswind runway to 5700ft

-Avg. 340 Arrivals and Departures

-I think we do about 3.5 million passengers a year.

I would like to see jetBlue or ever Virgin America come into the Hampton Roads marketplace.
B777 greatest Airliner ever built!

Sioux Falls (FSD) has had a surge in traffic lately with new service in the last two years on Northwest and Allegiant to Las Vegas, Delta to Cincinnati, Salt Lake City and Atlanta, Allegiant to Orlando and America West (seasonal which they said they would do) to Phoenix and they still have the Chicago and Denver routes on United.

It looks Frontier will be joining them on the Denver route in the next six months and still Northwest x9 daily to Minneapolis they have three A319 parked there in the morning and a CRJ. There is even talk that American wants back into the airport since it left a year ago because of issues with O'Hare but they will be flying to Dallas this time instead.

I am surprised no one has made mention of CAK...it seemed fairly backwaters until about 10 years ago - then FL came in - then they got F9 - and it is a booming little airport. They have really ramped up the flights to Florida and the northeast thanks to FL.

In fact, they are the only NE Ohio airport with service using PTVs. The new terminal expansion is coming along swimmingly and service is sure to grow even a little more.

Good for CAK!

Other airports that come to mind for me...

MHT, MSN, SFB, SWF and TVC - also, look for Redmond/Bend, Ore. to start to see a large influx of service, as that area continues to grow in leaps and bounds...

You forgot FAT has 2 airlines offering flights to Denver: UAX/Skywest to DEN and F9JetExpress to DEN. I can't believe you forgot the Frontier flights since they are operated by QX.
