Although service at PSM is currently limited to Allegiant flights, I could see more LCCs coming here, as it's very underutilized.
One gate. Free parking. Never a line. Also is an official point of entry with full Customs and Immigrations. Convenient to MHT area, North Boston and Southern Maine. A great "little" big airport.
It's so close to MHT, I can't see Allegiant starting service to MHT, but wouldn't be surprised to seen another LCC come in.

Wow, that's WAY up there.
Could TATL flights pass customs there? It's 3 hours from the CBP guys at Bangor, but it's near the border.
I wonder if they see an advantage to being a very northeasterly MRO setup in the US. Get something like a bizjet with short legs repositioning to the US from Europe to stop by...
Right now, the former Loring AFB, designated ME16, Loring International airport, is a private airfield that's almost unused for aviation. There's X's on the 12,500 foot runway, but planes can land with prior permission requested. Currently, there is no FBO, fuel, or any aircraft services available. However, Customs officials can meet aircraft with prior notice given. ( There's a nearby border control point into Canada with IC agents on hand. )
