Commercial service at LAL


#1

I understand Sky King will begin domestic service out of LAL around the first of the year. I have also heard several other carriers have expressed an interest in serving the airport. Any idea who they are? It has been quite a few years since LAL has had any kind of airline operations and I do hope they make a go of it. They have been awarded a large grant from FDOT for upgrading and expanding the terminal, baggage handling equipment and accommodating TSA. They also have a hangar being retrofitted for Sky King’s heavy maintenance department to service their Boeing 737’s. Sounds like this will take off one way or another.


#2

As of now Sky King is a charter airline. They mainly do sports teams and such. I worked several Sky King 737 charters in 2002 or 2003. They were filming Legally Blonde (1 2 3 I dunno never watched it) and the cast was flown to SPI as they allowed filming inside the capitol building here (DC would not allow it).


#3

They also operate several times daily flights to between MIA and Cuba.
