Well, if not having a people mover gets us closer to a real ICE port of entry facility, I'll surrender .

Re: Jetport

Cosakita, don't forget JetBlue's E190 and Delta's MD 88/90 mainline aircraft. Where did you find the CY 2017 emplacements for PWM and MHT? The FAA normally doesn't release the official numbers until October of the following year.

Re: Jetport

Frontier Airlines is implementing new service (November) to Tampa and Fort Myers from Portland in addition to Orlando which began last week. American is also adding a third daily flight to Charlotte.

The primary reason Manchester had more passengers was because of discount carrier, Southwest (before it was in Portland). It was such an irritant using that airport if living in the Portland area because of the lack of bus and other travel options. Soon Portland will double the passenger count of Manchester. 37 million people visited Maine last year and the number will continue to climb. Also, now that airfares in Logan have gone down a bit, less incentive for people in southern New Hampshire to use Manchester. And Manchester only an hour's drive from Boston. Why use Manchester when you have more options in Boston?

Well...to be a little pedantic, at the end of the day people only need one flight from among all the options available to them, and in some cases that 'best option' flight will leave from manchester.

And if that one flight is cancelled, or you miss it, the options pale in comparison to what Boston has.

As a Portlander, I'll take that risk and fly out of PWM if the price difference is reasonable, as a key point to me is not having that 2-hour ride home (from ether MHT, which I've never flown out of, or BOS) when I return.
