Recommendation 6: Allegiant Airline ...

To date our top recommendations in this order are: Start a marketing plan for ORH:  We love Worcester native Denis Leary as our spokesman “Why we don’t suck” Changes the times of Florida flights to early departure and late arrival. Add mid-day NYC flight into and out of ORH The main market that we can not get to from here [...]

Recommendation 5: Why we don’t ...

We were about to write our 5th recommendation but ran across this:   An important holiday message from Dr. Denis Leary. #WhyWeDontSuck pic.twitter.com/H34nHmpa9E — Denis Leary (@denisleary) December 6, 2017 Putting aside all the recommendations like changing times of the Florida flights, the biggest problem right now is the marketing o [...]

Recommendation 4: We need a mid day ...

Here is the upcoming NYC schedule starting in May ORH-JFK      6:00AM to 6:59AM JFK-ORH      10:46PM  11:52PM Ironcially we wish that the Orlando (MCO) and Fort Lauderdale (FLL) had times like this?   An early morning departure with late night return would be much better.  Lets hope this happens when CAT III is operational at ORH. Families [...]

Recommendation 3: Massport has to put...

Before anyone says anything, Worcester Airport woulld be completely screwed, if Massport did not take over our city owned airport.  We can thank them for: Not have to cover the annual operating losses The 40+ million spent on improvements, including CAT III JetBlue presence at ORH If Massport did not buy us, none of this would have happened [...]

Recommendation 2: Dennis Leary as ...

We have a major problem at ORH.  Nobody knows we have service!!!   If you live in Worcester or the immediate surrounding towns, you will know JetBlue flies to Fort Lauderdale and Orlando every day.   Bet you many of these same people, however, do not know we will be having daily service to NYC starting May. Next time you talk to a friend who [...]

Recommendation 1: Florida Times ...

After our post the other day that numbers were down at ORH, here were some of the comments Although we agree prices are slightly higher in Worcester, we feel that this is not the major problem.    In fact when you consider the value of your time, cost of parking at other airports and ease/convenience of ORH, we feel the prices are very compet [...]

State of the airport, numbers are dow...

The numbers at ORH have been declining pretty steadily.   Now we can look back at the numbers from last January thru October. Bradley went from 4.89 million to 5.11 million (up 4.68 percent) Providence went from 2.97 million to 3.12 million (up about 5 percent, international numbers are estimated according to their reported load factors. Eit [...]

Allegiant to start out of Providence,...

For years I have mentioned Allegiant flying to: Punta Gorda St Pete’s Myrtle Beach As a great compliment to the daily JetBlue flights to Orlando and Fort Lauderdale.  Alot has changed since they left: new ownership (Massport) new airport director $50 million in improvements CAT III coming soon And Allegiant has returned to other cit [...]

New Fort Lauderdale schedule makes no...

As great as JetBlue has been, I really do not understand the new summer schedule.   Flights leave at 7:08 PM and arrive in Fort Lauderdale at 10:16PM?    This it nearly impossible to connect with another flight arriving that late until the next day. Fort Lauderdale, a focus city for JetBlue, just added their 56th destination at Fort Lauderdal [...]

Rectrix and the ORH-Baltimore-Sarasot...

First, let me make it very clear that Rectrix has been a great addition to Worcester Regional Airport (ORH).    Our FBO facilities are now 1st class and can only increase General Aviation at ORH.   Great to join Rich Cawley from Rectrix Aviation for opening of $6 million aviation facility @flyworcester pic.twitter.com/cwLTRu1im4 — Tim M [...]
