Hello everyone, as a fellow person who lives in New Hampshire, I have been sticking by the news about how TF Green Airport has been getting a lot of new airlines while us here in Manchester, NH, it looks like the airport managers have given up and have not even tried once to get a new airline to fly into Manchester.
Manchester relies sooo much on Southwest, even though they cut so many routes from here, most notably to Denver. I feel as though this airport is going downhill so quick, that I feel like one of the four airlines will likely discontinue service here to Manchester.
Now look at Providence, Rhode Island. They are like Manchester when 2008 hit and they lost a lot of air service, but wait! They just gained a lot of new airlines!! How? Because their airport directors want to make traveling out of RI more convenient for people living in Providence! What does T.F Green airport have that Manchester doesn’t have?
T.F Green Airport
• US Customs built right into Gate 8
• International flights (Norwegian, Azores airlines, TACV)
• Better terminal
• More destinations
• New Airlines (Norwegian, Allegiant, Frontier)
Manchester-Boston Regional Airport
• New Consolidated Rental car facility (waste of money)
• No new airlines
• US customs at the Ammon Terminal
• New Family meeting area near the Entrences next to Baggage claim near the Southwest ticket counter
• Emtpy ticket area
• Gate 4 can accommodate aircraft as large as a B763ER, but they have not built US customs there for some reason…
I feel as if the airport managers or directors at the Manchester-Boston are doing NOTHING to get airlines to fly here. People here have been flying out of Boston because they have no other choice, Manchester got expensive. If the airport could somehow work with the community and see what the people would like to see in air travel, I would be delighted to tell them I want air travel to Europe from my home state! Instead, they don’t want to hear the community speak. There has to be some sort of change, if TF Green is gaining International flights to Europe, Manchester can too! I just wish the airport could at least get an airline to fly here, I would love new airline service so i don’t have to go down to Boston and be stuck in traffic for an hour.
