JetAmerica Has An Eye On Hartford

My friend Tom points out that JetAmerica President John Weikle mentioned Hartford as a potential expansion city in an interview with The Toledo Blade.

Whether this means Bradley International Airport or a smaller airport in the region is not entirely clear. Weikle’s last venture into airlines, Skybus, claimed it flew to Hartford, but actually used Westover Metropolitan Airport in Chicopee, Mass.  So far, though, JetAmerica seems to be picking more established airports.

There’s a fair amount of skepticism out there about JetAmerica, and it’s particularly well-expressed on The Cranky Flier blog. Whether the airline will survive long enough to get to Hartford, whatever it means by Hartford, remains to be seen.
