Headquarters of Corning Incorporated is in Corning NY, about 15 miles away. Corning is also the home of the Corning Museum of Glass (CMOG). CMOG has an extensive collection of Glass artifacts. If you are into art and Glass then it is worth a visit.
I think, they want to get some of the business traffic from Corning. Corning also has operations in Acton, MA
. Bedford airport serviced by PANAM is more convenient than the 5 hour trip to Logan by US or NW
and another hour drive to Acton. Whereas Bedford is much closer and the trip takes an hour!
We in the Elmira/Corning area welcome this additional pair of wings to our airport. Gives us more options!
