Low-cost Skybus Airlines is continuing its rapid expansion at the Portsmouth, N.H., airport and will also be adding a second flight to its "Hartford" operation at Westover Metropolitan Airport in Chicopee, Mass.
It’s all related to Skybus’ announcement of a new hub at Piedmont Triad International Airport in Greensboro, N. C., which seems to be related to its pullback from transcontinental routes in favor of shorter, eastern routes.
Starting on Jan. 15, Skybus will add two daily flights between Greensboro and Portsmouth. The Portsmouth airport, which Skybus bills as "Boston," already has two daily flights to Columbus. And it is scheduled to add two new flights in December between Portsmouth and Florida – one to St. Augustine and one to Punta Gorda.
So by mid-January, Skybus will fly six times a day out of Portsmouth.
On Jan. 17, it will add a daily flight between Chicopee and Greensboro. That will be in addition to its daily flight between Chicopee and Columbus.
