Sun Country Starting Flights Out Of Worcester
Recently we read this quote from our Airport Director, “What we’re looking for is to increase the frequency with existing airlines and bring in more airlines”, when being interviewed by Jeff Saperstone from NBC10 Boston. Link to the tweet .
Sounds great!! Over the past few years we have recommended ultra discount airlines like:
3) Sun Country
None of these are flying out of Worcester, but all of these have decided to start flying out of Providence over the past couple of years. Internationally TF Green added Air Canada to Toronto, while domestically getting JetBlue to add West Palm Beach.
There have been many more services added. Our point is that it is one thing to say it, while it is another thing to actually do it.
There were 4.3 million passengers enplaned and deplaned at T.F. Green Airport in 2018, a 9.2 percent increase from 2017’s 3.9 million passengers.
Providence is truly providing relief to Logan.

I think you guys are comparing apples to oranges. Manchester, TF Green, Bradley and Burlington are really the only major airports in their respective states. They are really the only game in town. ORH on the other hand has four major airports within a one hour's drive. This will always haunt ORH, limiting its growth. My thought is that some of these airlines see ORH as redundant and choose to fly out of airports with the best chance of success and profitability. I still see ORH as a niche airport that will only cater to the leisure FL crowd. I think the poor load factors on the JFK and PHI flightssomewhat proves my point. Based on that, I think the Delta flight to DET will also have mediocre load factors. I think we all might have to accept that ORH will have a very limited role in air travel in the New England airport system.

I liked the idea of being Central Massachusetts airport to Florida and other vacation destinations. Promote that and include our options through the hubs that can get you anywhere for your next trip.
