I've wondered the same. PIA's assistant airport director said that 60% of pax using BMI
were from Peoria (metro area, I presume). After the service started, airport director Ken Spirito said some future flights were booked full. We may hear something soon - October is gonna be a busy month for us because 1 daily UAX PIA-DEN
begins the 4th, G4
resumes twice-weekly PIA-PIE
on the 6th and G4
starts twice-weekly PIA-IWA the 27th. SFB
service and FLL
starts in November and December, respectively. Additional destinations are said to be in the works.
