Check out the video, it’s pretty neat. We are all waiting anxiously for it to open up as our two local airports PFN and VPS are pretty limited to outbound flights. The local communities are hoping to get some larger service aircraft and expanded routes. Any thoughts?
that would be Atlantic Southeast… they have a few regionals that serve Atlanta, Houston, Memphis, but it would be great to get Southwest or have it as a connection spot to help out ATL. Maybe it will attract some new routes.
It’s probably just me. I tend to refer to carriers by their ICAO code not their IATA code, hence the question.
But that wouldn’t be a bad idea, as it would be a feeder into ATL or MEM. SWA would be a good draw there too, as every other Florida destination is at least 5 hours drive, BHM is too far north, and MSY is at least 2 - 3 hours drive west. How far of a drive is it from ATL down to Panama City or Pensacola?
long story, but yes there is an old one. It is getting torn down and the land was sold for a lot of $$ for residential development. The St. Joe Company donated the land for the new airport and they are putting in a TON of commercial space at the new location. It’s the old “help me, help you” scenario. The St. Joe Company is banking on the airport to be a big hit because they have so much developmental land around the area.
