Airport Short of Revenue Guarantee

Springfield airport officials are still well short of the revenue guarantees for the short-term air service to Florida that they put in place after the shutdown of Direct Air.


But airport manager Mark Hanna says that emergency deal with Vision Air wasn’t about making money, it was about taking care of customers and preserving their trust in air travel out of Springfield.


Hanna says between 14-hundred and 15-hundred tickets have been sold for flights between now and the end of April, generating about 200-thousand dollars in revenue. But the airport has guaranteed 700-thousand in revenue for Vision Air.


Hanna hopes more tickets will be sold, but says the airport can endure the financial hit while it works to attract a carrier to take over the Florida Gulf Coast route permanently.
