Hagerstown airport talking to potential carrier

October 10, 2007

Hagerstown Regional Airport officials have been in talks with a potential replacement for Air Midwest, the passenger airline that left the airport Sept. 30, Business Development Manager Greg Larsen said Wednesday.

Larsen would not identify the carrier but said it is an affiliate of a major network airline.

"This carrier has shown a consistent interest in Hagerstown," Larsen said.

An agreement with the carrier would be contingent on Congress' approval of the Essential Air Service subsidy program, Larsen said. The program, which provides money for airlines to fly to smaller airports like Hagerstown, expired Sept. 30. Since then, the airport has had no passenger flights.

Larsen would not say where flights would go but said the carrier would not fly to Pittsburgh.
