Greenville lost its network carrier service in 2012. The EAS-eligible community then experienced three-plus years of inconsistent EAS air service. During this timeframe enplanements declined so much that the DOT issued a termination notice regarding Greenville’s continued eligibility for EAS program participation.
In the 2015 EAS bid cycle, Greenville was able to gain a reliable and reasonably priced dual hub air service (Dallas and Nashville) provided by Boutique Airlines. Sixel Consulting Group stood with Greenville through the entire three-plus year process, including defending the community against the DOT EAS eligibility termination notice. We also recruited Boutique Air and assisted the carrier in designing a service proposal that is successful for the community, the carrier, and the DOT EAS program. Sixel Consulting specializes in assisting small communities, and EAS communities, with their air service challenges.
