Expanding service to most popular nonstop destinations from Cincinnati – Delta News Hub
Are you a mid-market former hub airport desperate to get your old hub airline to pay attention to you? Just attract Southwest. Southwest announced it was ditching Dayton for Cincinnati recently, and now Delta is ramping back up. In the scheme of things, it’s not huge growth (6 percent more seats), but ANY growth at a dwindling hub like this is noteworthy.
Shortage means BYOP (bring your own pilots) is a reality for landing airline in Modesto – Modesto Bee
Well that’s one way to recruit pilots. Just look for some that live near cities to which you’re thinking about flying. It’s actually quite remarkable how much things have flipped when it comes to pilot demand versus just a few years ago.
Long Beach residents’ opinions influenced airport decision: Guest commentary – Long Beach Press-Telegram
I know, I know. You’re bored of the Long Beach Airport customs facility saga, right? But just one more link…. This is a guest commentary written by Stacy Mungo, the councilmember who motioned to stop moving forward on the customs facility. I’m not sure why she put this out, because the people who were against the facility already loved her for shooting it down. And those who supported the facility will just be angry to see her print such a grossly incorrect statement about how it would have been funded.
Part of her decision centered on the money that would go into the facility from the city. She says there were “tax dollars at stake,” but that’s not true. The $3 million that the airport was expected to contribute was going to be funded by Passenger Facility Charges paid by tickets purchased by travelers. This would never have touched local tax dollars in any way. This kind of misinformation is not something I’d expect from a sitting councilmember.
