Hooters Leaves Rockford

Rockford Airport, the model that ORH should follow and who basically followed the game plan laid out by IMG to ORH, is losing Hooters to Denver. It is not as bad as it sounds since the reason Hooters is leaving is because 1) United will begin flying to Denver in March, 2006 and 2) the NorthWest flights to Detroit (their hub) are both taking the Denver fliers.

As Rockford grows some of the second-tier carriers, who gave Rockford a chance, will be the casualty of the success that they helped create for Rockford. Don't feel bad for Hooters their are other secondary airport out there that need their help.

Like ORH!!
