Will CVG ever be renamed as William Howard Taft International Airport? CMH was renamed to John Glenn Columbus International Airport from Port Columbus International Airport back in 2016, and it was announced this week that SDF is going to be renamed as Louisville Muhammad Ali International Airport....Jump to post
CVG finally posted traffic number through to November. Pax traffic is up 13.77% YTD. Looks like CVG will finish the year at ~8.9 million pax, numbers not seen since before 2010. http://cvgairport.com/docs/default-source/stats/cvg-air-traffic-stats-2018-thru-november.pdf?sfvrsn=16 Posted this back a...Jump to post
Allegiant has added CVG to ORF service beginning June 7th with 2x/week service. Interesting route, but its only 2x/wk so you never know. It will be interesting to see if they can stimulate leisure traffic like they did with the other costal cities like VPS/MYR/CHS/SAV/etc. BNA-ORF/SYR (and now GRR) ...Jump to post
Unlike BNA-ATL, where it is connecting a midsized market to a top 10 market, BNA-IND is a route connecting two mid-sized markets of similar size. As such, I cannot imagine there is a ton of O&D between the cities, so a WN 737 may be too much plane. That said, connections may be needed to make t...Jump to post
Now that the A220s are coming in and B717s are finally being shifted east, it will be interesting to see what routes they upguage at CVG. I'd imagine we will see more B717s than A220s, but hopefully both make appearances. Seems like CVG-DTW/MSP/NYC/BOS/Texas would be the best chances for more mainli...Jump to post
Apparently NK and/or G4 are announcing some new routes tomorrow. Sounds like it will be an interesting morning, even if nothing comes for CVG/CMH/DAY. There is no real need for NK to add service to CVG since WN could add CVG-DAL, CVG-FLL, CVG-RSW, CVG-HOU, CVG-LAS, CVG-MSY, and CVG-TPA nonstop serv...Jump to post

I don't think this would be wise for AS, DL also might be connecting Asia traffic through this route. The load factor for August for DL's CVG-SEA flight was 86% and it was on a 738. If Alaska brings in what they typically do, a 739 I don't think it will work well. Maybe the could connect some folks...Jump to post
What are the chances that Ultimate Air Shuttle (UE) will reintroduce some service from CVG? There is a market for regional service to and from CVG. Comair (OH) proved that! I know, that was back in the day, but I believe that many segments of that market are still there. They are currently trying t...Jump to post
Happy New Years and thanks for a great 2018 in the previous forum!

We tried a separate CVG thread in 2017 and everyone just came back here. That said, I'm willing to try it again, as it does seem some topics are lost. Here was the old thread: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1358995Jump to post
https://twitter.com/CVGairport/status/1079154306690019328 Looks like CVG's baggage system is once again having issues. At what point will this become a critical problem? From what I've heard, A is teetering on the brink. IMO, it seems like baggage has been working better than normal recently, but m...Jump to post

AA at BNA is actually bigger than STL! They handle more passengers annually than many outstations in the network. There’s some underlying issues with AA at BNA. One of them is the ground handling. On the bright side, UA has multiple mainline flights to ORD! Wikipedia (not sure how accurate) shows A...Jump to post

To add on, CVG just announced today that Amazon will break ground on their facility in Q1 2019 with an estimated finish of Q4 2021. Hopefully we get a more specific starting date in the near future, but it sounds like we are only a month or two from breaking ground. Really exciting to see the whole ...Jump to post

So what makes airlines like OneJet fail, but others such as Southern Airways Express and Contour succeed? Southern has EAS contracts, so that explains them. Contour is a mix, having a parent Contour Aviation handling jet charter services, but they also have EAS contracts as well. Ultimate and JetSu...Jump to post
I know they've been cut heavily, but what's the purpose of keeping a focus city there? I know it's not small potatoes, but CVG isn't anywhere near the level of BOS & RDU as far as growth and economic significance. Increasingly, they (DL) are facing bloodbaths on the routes they operate on out o...Jump to post
Just curious if anyone was/is able to get a pic of the Hawaiian A332 that looks to be staying the weekend on the ground at CVG (Oakland Raiders charter for Sunday's game).

Just a quick data point, flew CDG-IND this past Tuesday. 71 total pax on board, 15 up front and the rest in Comfort +/Economy. Never seen a plane as empty, but certainly didn't mind it. Crew was on a six-day turn, ATL-CDG-IND-CDG-ATL and FA's were also happy with a light load, though they did say t...Jump to post

Does anyone know why the CVG stats haven't been updated since August? Taking a loooooong time. Are they still working at the master plan too? Things have been quiet for awhile. Not sure, but they seem to do this at the end of the year. I wish the stats came out more reliably and had more detail lik...Jump to post

I found a flight to GRU on October 27th, the GRU cut seems to be a seasonal suspension at least as of now. My question is, does anyone know what they are doing with the aircraft?

Effective Feb 14, one of the CVG-DFW MD80 frequencies will be switched over to an A319. Although its technically a downgauge, hopefully this will allow for some mainline to flow through CVG (as DFW is the only MD80 station). F9 also appears to have added a 2nd daily CVG-DEN on Fridays, hopefully the...Jump to post
Used to be pretty common in Cincinnati, but I flew DAY-CVG-ATL-MCO on numerous occasions to save money over a direct CVG-MCO.
