Airport Development & Air Service Enhancement
The Regional Air Service Enhancement (RAISE) Committee continued its efforts in support of the Peninsula Airport Commission to attract, retain and grow desirable air service. The launch of PEOPLExpress provided a surge in ridership to key markets including Boston and Newark, and proved again that the market demand is strong for these routes. While Frontier departed the market late in the year due to new ownership direction, the route track record since 2010 was a major success. Both Delta and US Airways continued to grow and show solid performance in our market.
