Airtran Adds Additional PBI - HPN Flights

Thu Jan 18, 2007 11:36 pm

FL must be having some very high load factors on their PBI - HPN flight. Previously FL announced a second flight to start in Feb and they now have announced a third daily flight effective in May.

Since May is after our so called season, they must be doing very well on this route.
PBI is South Florida's BEST airport!

They are doing very well on PBI-HPN, as well as FLL-HPN which quickly went double daily. They might also be adding MIA-HPN (1x daily) this summer. Great, high yield and un-tapped market. airTran added PBI-HPN in the first place because of the large amount of business jets that fly South Florida-White Plains.

I can remember when FL first announced HPN and several people said they would not do well due to the "class" of people in white plains, saying that FL was not up to their standards. Its good to see that they are making out well and are able to provide HPN with much needed service.

FL is great @ HPN! I've never taken them, but they've lowered other fares substantially. Before FL airfare out of HPN was often insane, now it's usually not too much more than LGA.

I'm surprised that the flight is going to 3X daily in May. It would seem that would be a slower season for it.
