Latrobe Is Back on the Map

Very slow news day in the ol’ airline industry yesterday…

A bunch of new routes were awarded (DCA to Jackson, MI for Delta; DCA to Des Moines for Northwest.  For a full explanation of why these non-hub routes were awarded, click here).  But I was most happy for Arnold Palmer Airport in Latrobe, Pennsylvania, which will see new 3-times daily service from Detroit.  The airport has not had commercial service since July, when US Airways pulled out.  Latrobe may be insignificant on the international aviation map, but if you had to drive 90 minutes every time you wanted to fly, you’d appreciate 3-times daily prop service, too.
