New Airline At ELM

Sat May 05, 2007 9:27 am

According to the news article ELM is going to announce a new airline sometime this year. I'm thinking it might be Big Sky to BOS. Maybe UA is going to add service to IAD. Any other guesses?

ELM is a nice airport. I had to fly up there today to fix one of our broken jets. Very friendly and helpful rampers and gate agents. It was my first time there and I really liked it. They have a good restaurant too with reasonable prices. All you can eat soup and salad was like $6.00.

It's been a few years since I've been at ELM. Do they still only have the one jet bridge?

You are right. I never thought about G4. I wonder how Pan Am did on the ELM-SFB route.

I am going to say pretty good. Pan Am has been very notorious for pulling out quickly or not starting announced routes. So, I would venture to say it at least broke even for them to keep it around for as long as they did.
