Today was some great news for ORH. For details check out http://www.allegiantair.com/pr/092805.htm. This is a great first step, but make no mistake about it, we have many many more steps ahead.
Not to be negative on such a good day, it was not happy to hear that the Airport Commission (not DeSantis or Santa Maria) voted in favor to charge for parking. First, I did not think this was possible since the DOT grant specified free parking for the first 6 months. Second, it is just bad business.
We need to learn from other secondary airports who have achieved success. Check out Rockford Airport's web page, check out how important FREE PARKING is. Have we learned nothing about the importance of free parking to people in the ORH catchment area?? Lets hope this is reversed so that we are able to build on this first step.
