October 25th, 2007 · No Comments

Skybus Airlines confirmed this week that it will put its second base of operations at Piedmont Triad International Airport (PTI) near Greensboro and add nonstop, low-cost flights to seven cities.

The company is known for its promise to include 10 $10 seats on every flight.

Beginning Jan. 6, Skybus will add a second daily nonstop flight to Columbus, Ohio. Starting Jan. 15, Skybus will offer flights to Boston, with two flights daily through Portsmouth International Airport in Portsmouth, N.H.; to Jacksonville/Daytona Beach, Fla., through St. Augustine Airport; and to Fort Myers/Punta Gorda, Fla., with two flights daily through Charlotte County Airport in Punta Gorda. Beginning Jan. 17, there will be flight service to Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Gulfport-Biloxi, Miss., and the New Orleans area through Gulfport Biloxi International Airport, and to Hartford, Conn./Springfield, Mass., through Westover Metropolitan Airport in Chicopee, Mass. Service to Los Angeles through Bob Hope International Airport in Burbank will start Feb. 25.

Piedmont Triad International Airport is an hour’s drive from Mount Airy or Elkin in Surry County (and as little as 50 minutes from Pilot Mountain).
