Anyone visiting the Scranton-Wilkes Barre Airport (AVP) over the last five (5) years can’t help noticing the number of license plates from Texas Oklahoma, Missouri and elsewhere. Parking spots are at a premium. When the natural gas boom was in full swing, seats on local flights were full and additional flights were added.
Now, even though drilling has slowed due to excess surplus and low natural gas prices, AVP and the airlines are exploring restarting flights from Wilkes-Barre /Scranton to Pittsburgh. There popular flights were halted seven (7) years ago when Pittsburgh International lost it’s status as a U.S. Air Hub. The Scranton Times reports this morning that studies are underway that may restore service. Nothing is certain but with natural gas drilling here to stay, the return of additional flights may be in the wind.
