“Many positive developments are underway in Jamestown and Chautauqua County that continue to add momentum to our growth from exciting plans for downtown revival to regional economic initiatives,” said Teresi. “It is important to highlight the significant improvements that have been made to our local air service and to communicate the successes experienced in recent months. This service is taking hold with great promise, interest, and momentum for future success.”
In 2014 Sun Air became the essential air service carrier for the Greater Chautauqua-Jamestown Airport. It began offering trips from Jamestown to Pittsburgh last November. Since its inception in Jamestown, many changes have been made to its services as it has invested in new aircraft, pilots, and customer support that have improved reliability, customer service, and baggage capabilities.
“Central to our future economic success is the ability for Chautauqua County to remain on the map of the national air transportation system,” said Horrigan. “For the first time in more than a decade, we have the right combination of service, price, and destination to live up to our potential as a vital economic development center with wonderful quality-of-life. Sun Air Express’ service with its frequent flights, outstanding reliability, comfortable aircraft, and low fares to Pittsburgh is the right service to propel our region forward.”
