I can't figure out if BFL
is a small or large airport...airline flights are in and out like hurricanes through the Caribbean. At its peak, there were at least a dozen jet flights on UA
, & CO
in the mid-to-late 1980's to DEN
, and SBA
. All retreated with the exception of United Express, which in late 1999 was the only game in town with EM2's to SFO
All this with one of the longest runways in the United States. It has hosted Air Force One, and was considered an emergency landing site for the Space Shuttle (if the local paper can be believed).
Now the city is building a modern terminal (only about 40 years past due!!) with jetways, and easily expandable (we'll see about that) facilities to add more jetbridges as needed. Now that HP
Express and CO
Express (maybe CO
mainline?) are firmly entrenched and doing very well there, and soon to be using these new jetways, "podunk" will no longer be a viable term.
