LAST WEEK'S QUESTION:
Skywest, Boutique and Cape Air all went in front of the Massena Town Council to pitch their airline for the Essential Air Service contract.
The EAS program offers federal subsidies to keep planes flying out of underserved areas. The current Massena EAS airline is Boutique Air, and their contract is about to expire.
Greg Atkin, Skywest's managing director of marketing development, told the board they plan to use 50-passenger United-branded jets to make four daily flights back and forth between Massena and Ogdensburg and Chicago and Washington, D.C.
Boutique president and founder Shawn Simpson proposed keeping daily flights to Boston and possibly adding a Baltimore or Pittsburgh destination.
Cape Air is proposing three round trips daily from Massena to Albany and Boston, or three round trips daily from Massena to Boston non-stop.
Which airlines would you prefer in St. Lawrence County?
