Vision Airlines Suspends Service At VPS

Wed Jan 25, 2012 2:30 am

Not really unexpected. But they actually think they might start back up in summer runs.

Raise your hand if you didn't see this coming... Oh... Nobody? Ok

Like you said, not really unexpected.


I like where the article quoted:
"Additionally, Southwest is announcing their routes and we do not want to compete with this major carrier."

Smart thinking...

Again, raise your hand if you think Vision will survive... Oh... nobody... ok.

Hmmmm....they are $225K behind in payments to NW Florida Regional airport.

I pointed out in the thread about UP getting authority from FPO to RIC/BWI/SDF/RDU that the Louisville paper said Vision will killing all flying out of SDF in Feb with the exception of FPO. It also mentioned that the company owes about 200K to the SDF Regional Airport Authority.......so God knows who else they are in hock with.

I'm surprised that Vision isn't just going to end all scheduled routes

They seemed to be fine filling their niche as a small charter operator with some scheduled grand canyon stuff.. not sure what was wrong with that?

So if Bahamas Air is starting those routes from FPO, and WN is starting SDF-ATL, is there really anything left for Vision Air to fly? I think the only route that does descent for them is SDF-FLL

Quoting smoot4208 (Reply 6):

And yet they no longer run that route. From what I heard Vision plans to go back to Charter service only.
