GoLocalWorcester column There are many misconceptions about Worcester. One was that we need an access road. Not one person has complained about accessing Worcester Regional Airportsince JetBlue began service on November 7, 2013, and I feel that this may be behind us.

JetBlue committed long-term to ORH

JetBlue committed long-term to ORH
GoLocalWorcester link People make comments to me that JetBlue needs to make a profit at Worcester to stay here. Obviously this is true, but at the same time, JetBlue is committed to Worcester long-term. If they do not make money during the first six months, they are not pulling out of Worcester.

Worcester to San Juan and Bogota

Worcester to San Juan and Bogota
GoLocalWorcester Story. Fast forward, the Super Bowl was last week and Groundhog’s Day has passed. The doldrums of winter have settled in and you want to get out of town. The only place you can fly out of ORH are Orlando and Fort Lauderdale, right? I remember when a group of us got together (Tim McDonald, Tom Moore, Dave Stead, and Tim DeSant [...]
