US DOT terminates EAS availability at 21 communitiesch-aviation
It’s that time again when the Department of Transportation culls the list of essential air service markets. This year, 21 airports are in danger of losing their service, though we know not all will be kicked out.

  1. Last fall 27 EAS airports failed to meet minimum boardings and/or max per-passenger subsidy and every one but Jamestown NY got a waiver. Would not be a surprise if fewer than five actually get dropped.

  2. One of the cities, Prescott, Arizona, is about a two to three hour drive from Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport (mostly depending on traffic). There are shuttle busses that run regularly between Prescott and Sky Harbor. Then one wonders why few board an airplane.
