Today I was thinking about LGU (Logan, UT) and possible airlines that could serve there. I know there was a push around 2008ish to get air service started. I think they had interest from F9 at the time back when they had Lynx Aviation flying the Q400. Obviously with the recession and the demise of Lynx and that particular F9 business model that didn't turn out.
Doing a little research I cam across this recent article from august talking about the possible new service. Nothing is mentioned specifically but was wondering what a.net users think about the possibility of service being added in the next 5-10 years.
On Thursday morning during the Logan-Cache Airport Authority Board meeting, Ivie said the board will hear from a consulting firm that hopes to get approval to help obtain a scheduled flight service to the airport.
“Right now we are in the talk stage,” Ivie said. “We have a new consulting firm that is doing a presentation about pursuing grants and obtaining a service.”
In 2008, Ivie said a similar study was conducted to evaluate the need of a scheduled air service, but the idea was never followed up on because of the economy.
“There was an ongoing study, and they did have an agreement with Frontier Airlines, but with their bankruptcy it never happened,” Ivie said. “There is some controversy with it. Some say we need it and some say we don’t. There could be a need for air service. It would be beneficial to business.”
As of 2014 the Metropolitian Statistical Area for Logan, UT was at 131,364 and according to google maps the drive takes just over an hour to get to SLC but with winter weather or traffic that could probably be higher. With a University and several new businesses as well as some tourist attractions such as Bear Lake I could see it as a possibility.
They don't have any terminal building so a brand new one would need to be constructed.
I think OO/4B could offer flights to SLC or DEN. Maybe G4 to LAS/IWA.
