Small Community Air Service Development Pilot Program

Issued and Served April 29, 2003

Order 2003-4-22
OST-03-15065 - Small Community Air Service Development Pilot Program

Order Soliciting Community Grant Proposals | Word

The law authorizes the Secretary to provide financial assistance (direct financial assistance to an air carrier is limited to three years) to as many as 40 communities nationwide in each year for which program funds are appropriated, though no more than four of those may be from the same state. Communities that are eligible to participate in the grant program are those communities that are served by an airport that was not larger than a small hub airport for calendar year 1997, as defined by 49 U.S.C. 41743 (c)(l), and had insufficient air service or unreasonably high air fares.3 Communities that currently do not have air service qualify, but the airport where service would be provided must meet the certification requirements of the Federal Aviation Administration for commercial airports. While no community is required to contribute a portion or share of the cost of this program, the law directs the Secretary to give priority to those communities where: (a) average air fares are higher than the air fares for all communities; (b) a portion of the cost of the activity contemplated by the community is provided from local, airport-revenue sources; (c) a public-private partnership has been or will be established to facilitate air carrier service to the public; and, (d) improved service will bring the material benefits of scheduled air transportation to a broad section of the traveling public, including businesses, educational institutions, and other enterprises whose access to the National air transportation system is limited.

Proposals are due June 30, 2003. Given the limited time available to make these grant awards, proposals filed after that date will not be accepted. Interested communities should submit an original and four copies of their proposals, including the new Summary Information, bearing the title "Proposal under the Small Community Air Service Development Pilot Program" as well as the name of the community or consortium of communities applying, the legal sponsor, and the docket number as shown on the first page of this order, to Dockets Operations and Media Management, M-30, Room PL-401, Department of Transportation, 400 7th Street, SW, Washington DC 20590. Questions regarding the program or the filing of proposals should be directed to Teresa B. Bingham, Associate Director, Office of Aviation Analysis, for the Small Community Air Service Development Pilot Program at (202) 366-1032 or terri.binghamost.dot.gov.

Correspondence of Alfred E. Kahn in support of Tompkins County

As former Chairman of the Civil Aeronautics Board and in some degree responsible for the deregulation of the airline industry, I am uncertain about the propriety of my endorsing an application for a grant from the community in which I live.

I believe, however, that the Small Community Air Service Pilot Program is a sensible one-just as I specifically endorsed the Essential Air Services Program at the time when I was also supporting deregulation. And I hope you will feel that Tompkins County qualifies for such a grant. I can testify that our air service has significantly deteriorated, in important part because we are served by only a single carrier.

Correspondence of Flint Area Convention and Visitors Bureau in support of Bishop International application

I would like to express our continued support of Bishop International Airport's (FNT) efforts to expand AirTran Airways' low-fare jet service from Flint to the East Coast. Currently, the fares between cities such as Washington, New York and Boston are cost prohibitive. After AirTran announced low-fares between Flint and Atlanta and then to Orlando, the use of Bishop saw a tremendous increase. Unfortunately, nonstop, low-cost transportation is not available between Flint and many important destinations.

Business growth, especially in these economically depressed times, depends on convenient and reasonably priced transportation. Meetings of associations and vocational groups are attracted to a community by low cost transportation. Continued growth of our hospitality industry is dependent on our sales people being able to travel to solicit meeting planners. Once the meeting is booked, our ability to offer low cost transportation to their members is equally important. Low cost transportation to and from Bishop International is a key to the continued success of our business

AirTran has become a key corporate citizen of our community. They work with us to develop travel from feeder cities to Bishop, enhancing our ability to attract travelers to our community. In the past we have partnered with airport officials and AirTran to support new service. We are prepared to continue this support when AirTran is able to expand their service to East Coast cities. There are tremendous economic benefits of this program and the resulting expansion of transportation services to our community.

Correspondence of Merril, Arnone & Jones in support of the County of Sonoma

I am drafting this letter in support of the request by the County of Sonoma for a Small Community Air Service Development Program Grant. As you are probably aware, the potential area serviced by Sonoma County Airport/Charles Schultz Airport covers a major market area that expands into Northern Napa County, Lake County, Southern Mendocino County and the Northern edge of Marin County. This area is home to a very resilient economy serving a broad range of technology firms, agricultural endeavors primarily high grade premium wineries, and numerous manufacturing facilities. It also supports a burgeoning tourist market centered around the wine industry and natural attractions.

It is critically important for Sonoma County and, indeed, the entire area serviced by the Sonoma County Airport to provide quality local airline service to its residents, the business people that travel from and to this area, and the tourist trade that provides a major economic component to the area. To this end the availability of the Small Community Air Service Development Program Grant would be of critical importance. I would urge you to strongly consider approving such a grant for the County of Sonoma under these circumstances.

Correspondence of Orange County in support of the City of Tallahassee's application.

The City of Tallahassee will be submitting an application for a grant under the Small Community Air Service Development Program to introduce low-fare air service in the TLH-MCO market. Tallahassee has achieved remarkable success in lowering airfares in the Miami and Tampa markets. Low-fare service to/from Orlando, one of the state's largest cities, to the state capital would be beneficial to the citizens of our communities and all of Florida.

We believe that the public/private partnership proposed by Tallahassee will ensure the success of the service. Therefore, Orange County supports the application being submitted by the City of Tallahassee and encourages the Department's approval.

Correspondence of Richard Shafer in support of Sonoma County's application

I write in support of Sonoma County's application for a grant under your Small Community Air Service Development Program.

After moving to Sonoma County in 2001 for family medical reasons, I was disappointed when commercial air service discontinued. My work requires travel up and down the West Coast and to a lesser degree across the country. I travel to many small communities by air, and the "North Bay" of San Francisco needs service more than most.

As I am confident you will see, the demographics support the need for commercial service north of San Francisco. The entire community has made a commitment to develop airport service. Such service would allow me, and other business people, to expand professional work force locally. I place offices near airports because, as shown in the enclosed brochure, we cover one-third of the United States landmass and onesixth of its population from very few locations.

Oakland and San Francisco airports are relatively difficult to access from where I live, just west of Santa Rosa, due to distance, bridge and highway congestion. The time and difficulty involved in reaching North Bay has a dampening effect on tourism as well. For example, we recently decided to hold a multi-day "retreat" involving about 50 people from my business in Oakland's Jack London Square rather than Napa or Sonoma. Although the North Bay was our preference, and many would have extended their trip to take advantage of "wine country," in the end we simply could not justify the additional time and logistics required to transport people much beyond where their flights arrive.

I understand that at least one airline is seriously considering starting service between Sonoma, Los Angeles and Seattle. This would be very well received "point to point" service. From the national and international "hubs" we would have access to a full range of air service. A grant from your department will be extremely helpful and much appreciated while we all seek to improve transportation during challenging times.

Proposal from Hot Springs, Arkansas

Prior to the initiation of airline service by Mesa Airlines in July of 2002, the previous carrier in the market, Big Sky Airlines had damaged its reputation past the point of repair. No confidence was placed in the carrier by businesses or travel agencies directing passengers to airline airports. The primary reason for this involved the lack of schedule reliability. In this regard, reported schedule completion rates in the 70% and 80% range were typical of many weeks during 1999 and 2000, with on-time performance averaging much lower. In the early days of Big Sky service, on-time performance in the 50 to 70 percent range was a normal occurrence, particularly when pilot shortages were being experienced by the airline. This lack of reliability was the ultimate problem that eliminated community trust.

Proposal of Logan/Cache County Airport Development Task Force

At the present time, the Logan/Cache area relies on the Salt Lake International Airport for both passenger and cargo service. Driving to Salt Lake City International Airport requires crossing a mountain summit and then traveling south on the crowded Interstate 15 to the Airport. Winter weather makes the trip over the mountains dangerous and the auto traffic at peak times on Interstate 15 causes delays in transit. The in-transit time, including parking, between Logan and Salt Lake City International Airport is two hours. With enhanced security at Salt Lake City International Airport, it can take one-hour to one and one-half hours to check in and pass through the security checkpoint to get to the gate. The airlines require at least thirty minutes at the gate. This now becomes a fourhour venture to get from Cache County to board the aircraft, or as much as a two-hour transit time for cargo on products such as medical serum, which is time sensitive.

Proposal of Cut Bank Airport Authority

The communities of Glacier, Toole, and Pondera county, Montana, an area of 5000 square miles, are without air service to any medium size hub. The closest medium hub is Billings, Montana, a distance of 350 miles by vehicle. There is no direct public transportation directly to that facility. The community of Cut Bank, served by Cut Bank International Airport, was served by Western Air up to about 1969 when airline deregulation occurred. Cut Bank International was designated as an essential air service airport during the original deregulation. However, without public comments or official government actions, the Airport Commission and airport business chose to not allow the community to claim the designation. The areas limited public transportation systems, distance from hub airports and high volume of tourist, business, tribal, and government travel dictate a re-establishment of the air service to these areas. The purpose of this grant will be to determine the level of that travel and the expected boardings.

Proposal of the Southern California Logistics Airport Authority

Southern California Logistics Airport (SCLA) is the former George Air Force Base, located in Victorville, California, San Bernardino County. There is no scheduled air service at the airport. The Airport Authority is firmly committed to start scheduled air service at SCLA and has devoted considerable energy and funding to do so. The attached proposal addresses the need for scheduled air service and demonstrates the Authority's resolve and commitment to begin service by August 2003.

Proposal of the Springfield Airport Authority

Over the past decade, Capital Airport has seen eight (8) airlines enter and shortly thereafter leave the market for various reasons. In 2002, Northwest Airlink became the latest carrier to make that decision. However, this region at one time supported twice as many enplanements and has proven that it has and will support local air service. Springfield can make it on its own but needs a stable airline environment.

What communities like Springfield need are long-term viable airlines that provide good service at competitive prices. There are currently three airlines serving the Springfield market. These carriers are American with service to St. Louis, United and ATA, both with service to Chicago. Unfortunately, the Springfield community recently suffered yet another setback when Northwest Airlines withdrew their service to Memphis last Fall. Our service area can maintain at least the remaining three airlines if we can find a way to reduce the airline costs thereby making them more profitable.

Proposal of the Jackson Municipal Airport Authority

In this application, the JMAA requests a grant to recruit nonstop turboprop service between Jackson and Nashville on Corporate Express Airlines. While this new service would very likely be operated under a code-sharing agreement with American Airlines as American Connection and offer some connectivity to points beyond Nashville, the flights will primarily be responsive to the growing community of interest between Central Mississippi and Nashville.

Proposal of Calexico International Airport, CA

The Calexico International Airport facilitates the corporate business air traffic that is associated with businesses in Calexico and the Maquiladora Industry in Mexicali. U.S. companies find it more convenient to use Calexico Airport and transit to Mexico by auto, taxi, or van instead of using the Mexicali International Airport. There are approximately 25 corporate flights per day involved with the Maquiladora Industry that use Calexico International Airport. Also, other corporate aircraft and general aviation use Calexico Airport as a customs stop between Mexico and the United States. Calexico's location is seen as the prime link between the interior of Mexico and the major markets along the west coast of the United States and Canada.

Proposal of the Chattanooga Metropolitan Airport, TN

Because of Chattanooga's close proximity to Atlanta, reliability on ASA is less than desirable. The current aircraft in use is the ATR-72 which is not reliable or passenger friendly. Flights are often delayed and/or cancelled to and from Chattanooga because of maintenance issues, leaving the traveler forced to drive or take a bus. After continued poor service, area passengers opt to drive to an alternative airport and have little faith in returning to their local airport for service. Several of the fastest growing Georgia counties are within one hour driving time to the Chattanooga Airport. Easy access on interstate 75 make the drive North for these passengers an easy decision to begin their air travel. Media buys in this new market area will be coordinated by CHA's Vice President of Marketing, who will work cooperatively with airline advertising representatives to ensure all parties are satisfied with the deliverables.

Proposal of City of El Paso de Robles, CA

Summary Information

The Paso Robles Airport is a non-hub airport and it currently does not have passenger air service. The proposed Air Service Market Study will allow the community to identify its passenger potential and recruit new air service to the airport. The community will fund approximately 25% of the total air service program and incentive package. The airport sponsor and the Chamber of Commerce have formed a public-private partnership to support the proposed air service initiative.

Motion of Metropolitan Knoxville Airport Authority and East Tennesseans for Airfare Competition for Confidential Treatment

By: David Conklin and Danni Varlan


Implementation of Small Community Air Service Development Pilot Program

Order 03-9-14
OST-03-15065

Issued and Served September 17, 2003

Order Awarding Grants | Word

We have sought this year to experiment with more statewide and consortium proposals. Our objective is to test more fully the benefits of a more comprehensive approach to air service issues, as well as the regional benefits of proposals from groups of communities joining together to enhance air service in their common service area, some of which involve communities in the same state and some of which involve communities from neighboring states. In addition, given the strong interest of communities with respect to airfare problems, we believe that we should also select a number of proposals that are specifically directed at addressing fare issues. This will permit the program to benefit from the experience of a broad a range of air service and airfare initiatives. As the grant recipients in 2002 are aware, we require the filing of quarterly reports on the progress of the authorized grant projects, as well as a final report at the end of the grant, which will enable us to evaluate both the successes and failures under the grant process.

We have decided to make 35 grant awards to the communities/consortiums identified in the attached Appendix, and, except as noted, have obligated the amounts to be made available under these awards as of the date of issuance of this order. We will proceed to execute grant agreements with each of the selected recipients regarding the approved grant project. Grant recipients must execute a grant agreement with the Department before they can begin to spend funds provided under this order. Also, grant recipients are subject to all grant conditions and assurances specified in Appendix B to this order.

Congress appropriated $20 million for the Pilot Program for fiscal year 2003, of which $19,870,000 is available for distribution.

Small Community Air Service Development Pilot Program

Order 03-9-25
OST-03-15065

Issued and Served September 30, 2003

Grant Award Order | Word

By Order 2003-9-14, the Department made its grant award selections for fiscal year 2003 under the Small Community Air Service Development Pilot Program, an experimental program established under the Wendell H. Ford Aviation Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century (AIR-21), P.L. 106-181, designed to help smaller communities enhance their air service and address airfare issues. Two of the selected grant recipients, Duluth, Minnesota, and the North Carolina consortium, were awarded smaller grants than they had requested. Consequently, in our order, we stated that the awards to these communities would become final and the funds obligated if they accepted the Department’s grant offer and executed grant agreements with the Department for their proposed projects within five business days of issuance of the Department’s order. In addition, shortly after issuance of our order, one grant recipient, the consortium of Athens, Ohio, and Morgantown, West Virginia, notified the Department that it was no longer in a position to accept the Department’s grant offer.

It is possible that additional funds may become available if projects do not succeed, or if funds made available for revenue guarantees are not needed because traffic levels exceed expectations. Should this occur, we will reallocate the funds to additional communities to the extent possible, consistent with both statutory and budgetary limitations. Therefore, as all remaining applications remain pending, we will not entertain petitions for reconsideration of this order.

Correspondence of the Eastern Iowa Airport

Recently, American Airlines announced a major restructuring of its hub at St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) that will take effect with the carrier's winter schedule. The changes will reduce the number of daily flights on American Airiness by nearly 50 percent. Since the announcement, the Commission has examined the effect of the service change on Cedar Rapids with regard to loss of origin and destination (O&D) markets, declines in overall service patterns, and traffic flows. The effect on the Cedar Rapids to St. Louis service is significant. Average daily flights will fall from eight to just three utilizing smaller turboprop planes. Even though American Airlines will add two daily flights from Cedar Rapids to Chicago O'Hare (ORD), the result is a 7 percent decrease in seating capacity for the Cedar Rapids market. Furthermore, because the number of onward destinations and flights at St. Louis is declining, Cedar Rapids passengers will use St. Louis less often as a connecting hub. As a result, Cedar Rapids passengers will find that they have fewer choices and that several destinations simply no longer have service.

Correspondence of Stockton Metropolitan Airport

America West's decision to withdraw from the Stockton market was essentially made while holding the airport at gunpoint. Despite solid load factors, positive yield, and significant financial incentives, America West presented what can objectively be termed a million dollarplus ultimatum. The carrier's exit from the market throws our community back more than seven years, to the last time Stockton was without scheduled air service. Compounding this matter are serious access issues relating to competing air service.

Thank you for sending Dale Morris to Duluth to meet with the Duluth Airport Authority on June 29, 2004 to present concerns relating to your Duluth - Chicago route. The Duluth. Airport Authority is committed to working with American Eagle as a partner to make this route a success. Having said this, we are deeply concerned about the potential of American Eagle pulling our of Duluth without giving the market an opportunity to mature.

Small Community Air Service Development Pilot Program


Order 04-8-30
OST-04-17343
OST-03-15065 - Small Community Air Service Development Pilot Program
OST-02-11590 - Implementation of Small Community Air Service Development Pilot Program

Issued and Served August 30, 2004

Order Awarding Grants

The many proposals submitted were carefully considered. This year's selections will provide financial assistance to over 40 communities in 30 states. In every award, the communities are contributing to the grant project from other than airport revenues. Many will also contribute to the project from airport revenues and provide in‑kind airport benefits to further the goals of the proposed service/fare initiatives. In addition to the communities' participation and involvement in designing the grant projects, these financial contributions reflect a commitment to the grant projects that is important to the success of the proposed service/fare initiative. Nearly all of the communities either have, or will establish, public/private partnerships to increase community participation and to facilitate access to air service for the community.

Response of Fresno Yosemite International Airport / Fresno, California to United Air Lines' Comments Regarding Grant

With all due respect to a fine airline, in reviewing the letter sent to the DOT by United, it appears that the carrier's Director of Regulatory Affairs is not well versed in the implementation and success of the Small Community Air Service Development Grant Program. This is unfortunate, as the comments made in United's missive reveal a failure to review either the history of the program or the intent of Congress when it passed the Air-21 legislation.

The comments made by United's Director of Regulatory Affairs were wide ranging, and in many cases they were unfortunately inaccurate. The tone of the letter also gives the impression that the writer views the grant program as one being used to the detriment of United, which certainly is not the case. As just one example, the allegation that Charleston SC has shifted its 2003 grant award to support service by Independence Air, to the detriment of United, is totally non‑factual.
