This program commits to serving smaller communities and airports throughout America by providing governmental incentives to Airports and Airlines to operate those routes. Beckley and Parkesburg routes generate approximately 4.8 Million dollars annually to the airlines in order to serve these cities. The four territories granted are Beckley, Parkersburg, Greenbrier/Lewisburg, and Staunton/Shenandoah.
They operate these routes generally onboard their smaller 30 seat Embraer 120 Brasilia aircraft, but are sometimes swapped for the larger -145 jets. As of April 1st, 2018, however, the service to Greenbrier and Shenandoah will cease leaving two remaining operations.
