Sun Air to start Lancaster flights Nov. 1Tim Stuhldreher
Florida-based Sun Air will begin serving Lancaster Airport on Nov. 1, airport Executive Director David Eberly said this morning.
That will increase to four daily flights Nov. 15, and to five flights at some point after that, he said. Tickets will cost between $40 and $50, he said.
Marketing plans are still in development, he said.
Lancaster service is provided through the federal Essential Air Service program, which subsidizes carriers in small markets.
Sun Air President Thomas Cooper said in August he hoped to start Lancaster service Oct. 15, but he emphasized that was a tentative date.
The small, private company flies scheduled and chartered flights between Fort Lauderdale and the Bahamas. Lancaster is part of its first expansion beyond that market, along with Hagerstown, Md.
