Worcester Airport: Top Stories in Central Mass in 2012

Monday, December 31, 2012

 

There was plenty of news coming in and out of the Worcester Regional Airport this year, but unfortunately not much of it included departure and arrival times for flights going in and out of the Commonwealth's second-largest city.

In March, Worcester's only airline Direct Air abruptly cancelled all of its flights. At first the cancellations were set to last two months until mid-May, but the Myrtle Beach-based carrier never got back off the ground.

Some questioned whether MassPort, which took over operations of the Worcester Airport in 2010, was content to let the facility lie dormant while Logan Airport in Boston flourished, but it wasn't long before a new potential suitor came calling.

JetBlue CEO David Barger toured Worcester and met with local officials to discuss the possibility of once again bringing a commercial airline back to the city, but Lieutenant Governor Tim Murray was running the show that day because Governor Deval Patrick was busy touring the Boston Ballet and could not attend.

While JetBlue continues to contemplate expanding service to Worcester, Rectrix Aviation, a private charter jet company, made moves to establish a fixed-base operation at the airport, so planes will be taking off once more.
