Southwest is scheduled to start PBI-PVD and PBI-PIT nonstop in February 2013. Don't know how well a start-up would fare again WN.
Yeah, as seasonal service, tho.
I could see PIT
working tho. From an operational/competition standpoint, It's no longer a major connecting hub but it still serves a large catchment area. Now, from an economical/financial standpoint, I view it as iffy. Even though the ACAA is working with this airline, I still think the fees at PIT
will prove uneconomical. Unfortunately, we're looking at those fees sticking around for perhaps another five years until the airport debt goes away...
For anyone wanting to jump on this saying, "if PIT
has so much demand, then someone would have jumped at it already." Well, someone did, and that someone was Southwest. A few years ago, there was discussion about Kelly wanting to operate upwards of 60 to 70 daily departures to more than a dozen new markets out of PIT
. Some time later, Penrod thought it was a good idea to hike up the landing and terminal lease fees substantially, thus ending such talk of such service...
