Punta Gorda Airport

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

A lot of people were disappointed when Skybus airlines ceased doing business earlier this year.  That being said, when 120,000 passengers passed through our little airport in four short months we proved there is demand for a passenger airline service in Charlotte County.  Well, the good news is that they just announced that Direct Air, based out of South Carolina, will start flying into Punta Gorda on November 22nd, 2008. They will start with service to Massachusetts, New York and South Carolina; and soon announce service to 3 additional locations.  I will let you know as soon as those new locations are announced.  Beyond the convenience that this offers our local residents and visitors, it will also help with economic development for our Airport Authority.
