HAGERSTOWN -- Kay Baker flew in from Tyler, Texas, to see her niece. Steve Berner was able to get back to Hagerstown quicker to handle a family medical emergency. Kay Cannady came from Tulsa, Okla., to visit her granddaughter. The three passengers were among those who took advantage of the first day of commercial air service between Hagerstown and Baltimore being offered by Cape Air. Hagerstown lost commercial air service in September 2007 when a federal Essential Air Service subsidy expired.

Headwinds can be good things for airplanes, but not so much for airports. The Hagerstown Regional Airport has suffered from so much facial buffeting over the past several years that it was about due - and deserving - of a breeze at its back. Had I been a Hagerstown airport administrator, I would have given up. That's it. I'd have gotten out of there and gone into phosphate manufacturing or something.

HAGERSTOWN -- Less than three months into Allegiant Air's twice-weekly service to Orlando, Fla., Hagerstown Regional Airport officials say ticket sales are exceeding expectations and chances look good for landing service to another popular destination this year. The success of Allegiant's less-than-daily, leisure-destination model is helping talks with two other operators that are interested in providing a similar service to another southern Atlantic Coast destination, said Greg Larsen, the airport's business development manager.

HAGERSTOWN -- The Washington County Commissioners unanimously approved a list of concessions Tuesday that can be made to new commercial service operators interested in flying to Hagerstown Regional Airport. The concessions, outlined in the airport's Commercial Service Development Policy, can include waiving airport fees and passenger terminal building rentals for airlines that meet certain conditions.

WASHINGTON COUNTY _ Hagerstown Regional Airport's new commercial carrier has a history of canceling flights that are not profitable, and once canceled a route before service got off the ground. But airport officials said they are confident Allegiant will have the ridership it needs to keep it flying out of Hagerstown Regional Airport. Allegiant Air on Sept. 17 announced plans to start twice-weekly nonstop flights between Hagerstown and Orlando Sanford International Airport in November.
