Central Illinois Regional Airport Gets Two New Destinations

Sun Jun 17, 2018 5:41 am

Bloomington/Normal, Illinois' Central Illinois Regional Airport is to announce two new routes on Tuesday morning, June 19. Any guesses?

Some say Allegiant Air...or a return of Frontier Airlines.

After reading the subject, I thought you were going to say it's been renamed the Bloomington-Normal-Decatur-Pontiac airport

Wouldn't be surprised to see Allegiant come in with more cities ... perhaps Las Vegas and Punta Gorda, channeling the former AirTran route to Ft. Myers

Of course we could see a left field add of Spirit coming in and going to Ft. Myers and Orlando, since you know, Spirit seems to be channeling the old AirTran at times.

Would be nice to see a little love from the home state airline of United, but since it did say two *new* routes .... OHare is already served by American which would probably be a defacto add if they ever came in.

So womp womp.

A little off topic, why doesn't Delta have service to DTW, but has service to MSP?

Perhaps you're new here. If you browse a few threads you will quickly realize that DL hates DTW.

Allegiant often announces new routes on Tuesdays. It seems to be their favorite day to do so.

I'd be shocked if it's AZA considering G4 already services AZA-PIA, which is only 38 miles away.

I thought the same, but G4 offers PIA/SPI-PGD and BMI/PIA-SFB. BMI-AZA would cannabalize PIA-AZA, but it isn't like the airline hasn't done that before.

I figure BMI-AZA/PGD will be the new routes announced Tuesday.

Cape Air with Cessna 402s. Everyone on here wets themselves with excitement over Cape Air announcements, it seems.

Yep, just saw it available on their website. A reinstatement of the flights that were cancelled back in 2014. Looks like DEN starts 24 Sep and MCO 2 Oct.

Local news release.

Twice weekly to Denver, 3x weekly to Orlando.

Pretty good flight times.

Wow. Nice to see Frontier coming back. Hopefully they make it stick this time.
