Rockford Airport, the model airport that we should follow, located an hour outside of Chicago who also had lost all commercial service has added another charter to the existing FunJet. Apple Vacations will fly from Greater Rockford Airport to Cancun, Mexico, starting next year. Pennsylvania-based Apple Vacations said Wednesday it will offer Saturday service to the popular holiday resort from Feb. 11 through April 22. The company, in business for 36 years, has served O’Hare International and Midway airports for many years and will continue to do so.
The other very interesting thing about this is that Apple Vacations utilize the USA3000 airlines, another Philadelphia based company , as their partner. Talking to Apple Vacations may be a way to make inroads with USA3000.
