Southern Airways Express and MDT

Wed Jun 27, 2018 10:28 am

Was surfing around the Southern Airways Express site and noticed that you can no longer book PIT-MDT or MDT-PIT. While the route map still shows Harrisburg there are no bookable flights.

I checked flyhia.com and Southern no longer shows up as one of the airlines serving the airport.

Anyone know what's going on?

Thanks! I’m surprised they lasted this long.

I had no idea how much attention that they have given to PIT and virtually reversed course in Memphis.

Well, everything at PIT is subsidized (except MDT, which wasn't). The Arkansas routes operated today are also subsidized. The 2013 route map was a pipe dream when it came to making a profit.

In the OAG thread it shows it returning in October.
I still don’t understand why LNS is subsidized while MDT is right up the road, sure is a great use of money.
