Regional Air Service Plan May Come To Pittsburgh International Airport

A new regional air service plan may soon be coming to Pennsylvania. The state's air service committee plan is in discussions with smaller regional airports to launch a pilot program that would use planes suited to fit 9-19 passengers to shuttle to Pittsburgh International Airport. The program would be run by the airports as opposed to the airlines, meaning the airports would be responsible for boarding passes, luggage, and other services. This type of program has never been seen before. The state's air service committee has been working on this project for a year and a half and recently held a meeting with representatives of four small airplane providers. Officials say ideally the service can be up and running by mid 2009.
