MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Southern Airways, which began daily service connection Morgantown to Pittsburgh and Washington D.C. in January, will move its D.C. area hub from IAD-Washington/Dulles to BWI Baltimore/Washington beginning July 31.
The move is aimed to capitalize on lower fares of connecting flights at one of Southwest Airlines’ largest hubs. Baltimore is also the busiest airport in the capital region and offers low cost rail connectivity from the airport to the heart of the nation’s capital.
“We believe our new low-cost flights to BWI Baltimore/Washington Airport, the capital region’s fastest-growing and most user-friendly gateway, will be very popular with both business and leisure travelers,” Mark Cestari, executive vice president of business development for Southern Airways, said.
These routes are part of the federal Essential Air Service program and were awarded to Southern Airways by the U.S. Department of Transportation.
“Morgantown is our busiest non-hub departure city in the Southern Airways system, and service there is possible only through this important federal program. Without it, passengers would be forced to drive to Charleston or Pittsburgh,” Stan Little, Chairman and CEO of Southern Airways, said.
