Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN/BGR) - 2019

OY (Omni Air) flew a military charter to BTV today with a 772. I believe this might be the first 777 at BTV. Does anyone know differently?

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN/BGR) - 2019

Smart move. Not sure on the gate situation, but could help split up a airline utilizing N and S concourses if they are anticipating some additional flights to come in the future from say F9. For example UA could use a gate on both N and S side and their PAX would be able to enter and traverse the c...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN/BGR) - 2019

I only see 15 empty seats on the BTV-ORD segment today. The 739 is alot larger than a 319. Looks like there was a need for extra seats, so it kind of worked out today. UA was not flying any mainline to BTV in April, and I don't think May is that much better for traffic, so maybe there is a frequenc...

For BTV, if I had to bet money I would predict not a lot of change. However, since there is no fun in that here's what I see as best case/worst case possibilities: Best Case - Frontier extends MCO beyond the current Feb-Apr schedule and adds DEN. - Somebody makes BTV's fondest desire a reality and a...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN) - 2018

Delta upgrades BTV-LGA to mainline (A320 too) for the first time this week. I've been hoping/waiting to see mainline on DTW too, but not yet. ATL and LGA for now. https://flightaware.com/live/flight/DAL483/history/20181222/1110Z/KBTV/KLGA I have bad news for you...that was a one time thing. All fli...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN) - 2018mm

Most likely seasonal. Same with PVD is seasonal. Yep, seasonal. Both DEN-PWM and PWM-RDU are due to resume on May 1. Somehow I missed that detail when service commenced. Thank you! I guess Frontier intended this flight to be more for leisure travel to Maine, during Maine's peak season, as opposed t...

Re: US Airports With Ramp Boarding and/or Bus Gates?

I believe that Allegiant used a ramp when they were at BTV. There is still a ramp (maybe the same one?) sitting around that is branded for United, but I have never seen it in use.

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN) - 2018

It's worth noting that Deputy Aviation Director Nic Lungo mentioned re-paving of the concrete around the terminal will allow the accommodation of "Larger planes." Also, this is an airport management that likes to be tight-lipped about expansion plans; so just because they're not public ab...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN) - 2018

BTV is a totally different market and more favorable because of the potential to draw from the 4.2m Montreal area, where TATL flights face higher Canadian fees and fuel costs. The province is very, very close to completing Autoroute 35, which will offer seemless freeway service from Montreal connec...

Re: The Rest of New England (BDL/PVD/MHT/PWM/ORH/BTV/HVN) - 2018

I would love to see a 2-3x weekly transatlantic flight of they can put a customs/immigration station inside the terminal. Same here - I've been quietly hoping that BTV would move forward with an in-terminal customs facility, to beat PBG to the punch with Montreal-oriented transatlantic service. Cus...

Porter served BTV??


From 2011-2018. It was seasonal from late December to March and targeted toward skiers. The typical frequency was 2x per week, although it might have been higher at the beginning and/or during peak holiday times.
