Few people take advantage of Vision Airlines deal at Willard
Friday is the last day that Vision Airlines will offer non-stop, lower fair air service to Florida through Willard Airport.
And so far, the number of people who have taken advantage of the deal isn't as high as officials had hoped.
Airport Manager Steve Wanzek said about 700 people have flown on Vision Airlines since it started flights on Dec. 19.
That number includes 12 flights, so on a 150-seat plane, that means about 60 seats were filled on average.
The deal with Vision Airlines had been scheduled to run through March. But it was cut back to this Friday because Vision said the airplane used for the route will not be available after that date.
Willard has no plans to try to start a new agreement with Vision Airlines, Wanzek said. Rather, the airport plans to talk to Allegiant Air and Direct Air to try to strike a similar agreement.
