From Chautauqua County Executive's office... U-S DOT rejects proposal to restore commercial air service to County Airport near Jamestown...

JAMESTOWN, N.Y.: -- Chautauqua County and the City of Jamestown were notified on Friday, February 8th by the U.S. Department of Transportation (US DOT) that the joint proposal by Boutique Air and Chautauqua County to re-establish commercial air service between Jamestown and Pittsburgh was not approved.  In justification of the decision, the Department’s Assistant Secretary for Aviation and International Affairs cited the underwhelming performance record of commercial air carriers to the Chautauqua County Jamestown Airport in recent years and the availability of commercial air service alternatives at public airports in Buffalo, N.Y. and Erie, PA.  In its Order rejecting the proposed route between Jamestown and Pittsburgh International Airport, the U.S. Department of Transportation did not foreclose other commercial air service options and expressly left the docket open for future action.  We just heard back from Mr. Borrello's office, and will have more on our 5 pm, 5:30 pm, and 6 pm WJTN News.
