What are some airport that don’t be have commercial air service but could?

Sat Apr 28, 2018 1:27 am

After 9/11 a lot of small, regional airports lost all commercial air service and haven’t seen any/much since. I’ve always been interested in these cases but haven’t found very many. What are some airports that are like this but could potentially get air service back? Which are still fighting for air service this late on?

Fort Collins/Loveland suffers from proximity to Denver but the airport serves a growing, affluent, population and large universities (CSU and UNC) And could support some commercial flights again.

A few miles further north on I-25, Cheyenne is also currently without commercial service.

I don't think anyone's fighting for service there, but Detroit City Airport last had airline service with ProAir back in the late 1990s. I flew on them a couple of times when visiting relatives in Detroit (15-20 minutes to their place vs. almost an hour).
The plural of Airbus is Airbuses. Airbii is not a word.
There is no 787-800, nor 787-900 or 747-800. It's 787-8, 787-9, and 747-8.
A321neoLR is also unnecessary. It's simply A321LR.
Airplanes don't have isles, they have aisles.

Contour flies MCN-BWI 1-2X daily and SY has chartered service to GPT. Considering how close MCN is to ATL it's a tough sell. This airport has had numerous chances and used to have mainline DL service and the support just isn't there. I think that MCN is still EAS and, if it is, that will likely end due to extremely low enplanements and high subsidies.


I'm still going out on a limb and saying OCF. There is a new terminal planned and the market is there. Numerous large corporations are locating near the airport and the need for commercial service is growing. The metro population is substantially larger than GNV as it is. DL can make a go of it if they so choose. Two to three daily CR7s to ATL. would be a good place to start. There is more than enough demand.

Fort Worth Meacham (FTW): Wonder if Allegiant could make a go of it with service to FL and Vegas.
Tuscaloosa (TCL): Might work in a similar fashion to AA Eagle's service to Stillwater, OK.

One that really comes to mind is Anniston, AL; a similar case to TCL and Roma, GA with prior E120 service to Atlanta. A small terminal is available at Anniston as well and I think the combined metro areas of Anniston, Oxford, Jacksonville, and Talladega could support daily CRJ service to Altanta or CLT with seasonal or special adjustments for the races. It's about half way between ATL and BHM. I reckon most people just drive at this point.

Someone mentioned Palmdale, which actually had CRJ and later E-120 service to SFO until ~2008, iirc.
People are saying. Believe me.

It's a shame that 120 ops ended at LAX. I figure Palmdale could sustain a couple of feeder flights a day, especially as the drive down the 14 into the basin can become a 3-hour proposition depending on the time.

In the UK, Coventry. It had it for a while (and the locals loved it), but with Coventry City Council owning a stake in Birmingham Airport any planning application to make it permanent got rejected!

Shame, as with Birmingham being very cramped it would have made a great short haul operation.

in the early 90's, US serviced MCN, AHN and CSG to CLT. I could see AA from CLT to CSG, maybe MCN, both with military bases. AHN may be tough even with the University of GA.

AA dropped RSW-MIA a few years back, and only brought it back for a couple of weeks during Christmas. I understand Naples area if rather affluent, but it's also 30 minutes closer drive to MIA/FLL than RSW is. If AA can't make the 'main' airport of the area (RSW) work, I would be surprised to see Naples happen.

Prescott, AZ. Lost service when Great Lakes ceased operations. They were in talks with maybe getting Boutique Air to start service to PHX and LAX but they recently abandoned those plans and have apparently received interest from other airlines wanting to operate larger planes. The article I read said 50-seat planes so maybe CRJ service.

KAUO Auburn, AL. Almost an hour and change to KMGM and KCSG, and nearly 2 hours to KATL. Metro area has over 150k and expected to be nearly 200k in the next decade. Along with the University and the amount of traffic during football season, it would easily support seasonal CRJ service to KATL, KDFW, or KCLT or even a Boutique Air flight to KATL. They also just built a new terminal back in 2011 that would be able to accommodate the traffic.

In Europe, Blackpool and Lubeck come to my mind. Both have seen commercial airline service in the past, Jet2 even had a base in Blackpool. Lubeck was used as an alternative to Hamburg by Ryanair and Wizzair until they both moved their operations to Hamburg. Now except for some helicopter service to offshore oil platforms at Blackpool there's nothing left of it.

If it's a case of "could" then I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Teterboro. If the relevant permissions were obtained and the weight limits rescinded then surely some airline(s) would be all over this as a NYC reliever airport.

Drive or take the train. The largest city, Wilmington is very close to Philadelphia. In fact if you stretch it, it could even be seen as a suburb of Philly, and the whole state is pretty small, so you’re never more than a few hours from PHL or BWI.
Why is flying so expensive? And why is flying well so much more?

There was also GeorgiaSkies from around 2008 to 2012 that flew ATL-MCN and ATL-AHN. Neither last when it's just easier to drive to ATL than having to fly then connect.

On one hand, it would be nice to have some air service (Most likely it'll be G4-esque flights to vacation destinations). On the other hand, 1 hour drive to IND is just not that long, making it hard to sustain flights from LAF. For that matter, driving up to ORD or MDW is doable also (although probably only for long-haul).

I can make the same argument for HUF (Hulman Field in Terre Haute, IN) anyway.

Not like airline didn't try. SX (Skybus) tried but of course, they went out of business. F9 tried some flights from ILG from 2013-2015, and again, deemed it not profitable. Wilmington, DE is only like 20mi from PHL, and it's maybe 30 mins drive (with traffic) to there. Further downstate is served by SBY.

LAF would be nice and all but it's just too quick to get to IND. You can pretty much fly down I-65 like a bat out of hell and the LAF airport is not really easy to get to. Red light central. By the time you get there you could be well on your way to IND, if not within a 9-iron shot of the place.

And if service went to LAF or Terre Haute, you'd pretty much have to come in with frequency and match IND fares dollar for dollar to get people on your planes.

LAF is actually really easy to get to with the relatively new US-231 right in front of it.

Yeah, IND is a serious competitor for the airport. However, if fares were competitive (which from what I've heard weren't in the past) then I'm sure the airport could sustain itself.

AHN may be tough even with the University of GA.




As a feeder airport to ATL, or CLT, I agree AHN does not work. We have been hearing that the city leaders are trying to convince Allegiant to start service, as an alternate to ATL. I suppose they could serve PIE, FLL, PGD, and SFB. But with $49 fares from Spirit, Frontier, Southwest, and basic economy fares from Delta out of ATL to MCO, and FLL, it could be difficult for Allegiant at AHN.

I would much rather use AHN, instead of fighting the crowd at ATL, not to mention the I-85, I-75 traffic through the city. But even that only works for the people who live northeast of Atlanta, and your flight options would be limited.

Since commercial service has ended at AHN, we have been hearing rumors about another carrier coming in. I don't look for this to happen anytime soon, but it would be nice to have that option at some point. It might also be popular with the students at UGA during spring break!

LAF would be nice and all but it's just too quick to get to IND. You can pretty much fly down I-65 like a bat out of hell and the LAF airport is not really easy to get to. Red light central. By the time you get there you could be well on your way to IND, if not within a 9-iron shot of the place.

And if service went to LAF or Terre Haute, you'd pretty much have to come in with frequency and match IND fares dollar for dollar to get people on your planes.


LAF is actually really easy to get to with the relatively new US-231 right in front of it.

Yeah, IND is a serious competitor for the airport. However, if fares were competitive (which from what I've heard weren't in the past) then I'm sure the airport could sustain itself.

Basically air service is not imminent:
1. Airport needs to be reconfigured for commercial flights
2. The greater Lafayette area is not pushing for service
