Burlington International Airport has added a new flight to LaGuardia Airport.
Beginning in December, American Airlines will begin flying from BTV to LaGuardia four days a week. It will be operated by Trans State Airlines on an Embraer 14.
From January 8 – April 2, the flight will be limited to weekends, as the airlines and the airport test the market.
Delta already flies daily from BTV – LGA. “They do very well,” said BTV Director of Aviation Gene Richards.
Also in December, American Airlines will add a second flight from BTV to Charlotte, North Carolina.
Richards says the single flight between BTV and Charlotte has a 92% ridership rate.
He says deplanements overall at the airport stayed consistent between July 2015 – July 2016. In August 2016, there were 5,000 more deplanements than in August 2015.
