Airport Authority Willing To Pay For Expanded Flight
So you say you're an
airline, down on your luck? Well, no more. All you need to do is
land in Sarasota (FL). Often.
Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport is trying to lure more
low-fare airlines to its runways. So the idea is pretty simple:
Offer them cash. Two million dollars, to be precise.
Right now, the airport is served by just one scheduled carrier
-- ATA. Airport officials bemoan the limited number of departures
and arrivals, so they want more airlines to show up at the gate.
They also hope more airlines will mean cheaper fairs into and out
of the West Florida city, located just south of Tampa-St.
There's local precedence for the offer. Two years ago,
Tallahassee (FL) offered ATA a $1.5 million guarantee for
scheduling service into and out of the state capital.
Sarasota-Bradenton is just one of several airports in Florida
hoping to lure new nonstop service from points north and west.
