Air Service Studies

Kent Economic Partnership, Dover, Delaware: 2010

R.A. Wiedemann & Associates, Inc. was selected in 2009 to perform an air service feasibility study for central Delaware. This study was funded under the Small Community Air Service Development Grant Program. The City of Dover is the capital of Delaware and is not served by an airline. Because of the significant corporate business in Delaware, many Fortune 500 companies have established headquarters and offices in the State. All of these companies must use airline airports outside of Delaware to travel to the State. The City of Dover and Kent County are interested in establishing airline service at the Civil Air Terminal at Dover Air Force Base. The Civil Air Terminal has an FAR Part 139 certificate in support of NASCAR charter flights into and out of Dover Downs. Inquiries have already come from Allegiant Airlines as a possible carrier. In addition, the feasibility study is considering the possibility of commuter service to Dulles in association with United Airlines. The study was completed in June, 2010 with the remaining possibility of service from Allegiant.
