So does this new service make Salt Lake/Wasatch Front the smallest US metro area with 3 airports providing scheduled air service?
|Quoting redzeppelin (Reply 4):|
It may not happen right away, but I wouldn't be surprised to see F9 or even UA add regular flights to OGD at some point in time.
|Quoting redzeppelin (Reply 7):|
AS seems to be a logical option for future OGD service. They are a major player in the west, but don't currently serve SLC, relying on their DL code-shares to get Utah traffic. I could see them trying out routes to either LAX or SEA out of OGD at some point. The DL FF base there certainly wouldn't complain about it, as long as DL didn't put up a fuss.
|Quoting EricR (Reply 8):|
The key question is whether AS believes they can pick up incremental customers by adding OGD or would it just cannibalize their SLC flight.

The Mesa area in particular has a large Mormon population, many of whom have family connections in Utah and vice-versa, and there is a lot of price-sensitive back-and-forth travel that goes on as a result.

Ogden and Allegiant were in talks in 2007 about OGD-LAS but Allegiant decided that route would not be profitable due to competing LAS flights at SLC.
