EAS At Ponce And Mayagüez, Puerto Rico

Tue Feb 13, 2007 3:21 pm

This is probably a stupid question, but I've been wondering about this for a couple days. If an EAS airport has obtained more scheduled service during a contract term, when a new contract cycle comes around, does it still get EAS service? I ask this, because PSE's Cape Air EAS ends soon and the DOT has ordered proposals for PSE EAS (along with Mayagüez). PSE has daily CO and B6 service to EWR and JFK respectively.

And on the topic of EAS, I do wish another carrier would replace Cape Air at Mayagüez. It's not that the service isn't good, it's great if you're just going to San Juan, but it's a bit annoying if you're connecting. There are no thru fares, no boarding passes past the 9K ones, and the TSA left when OW did, which all means that in San Juan you have to exit through baggage claim, go outside, find some stairs, climb up to the second level, go back inside and check in with whatever airline you're connecting with. It's a little hassle that has probably made people shy away from the old MAZ-SJU route. But I suppose with EAS beggars can't be choosers. And I can't think of a single airline that would want that route, so it's better than no service at all, but still.
