Regional Airports To Debut Jet Travel

For the very first time, jets are set to make their debut at the Salisbury-Ocean City: Wicomico Regional Airport. The name of the airline is Allegiant, a discount airline based in Las Vegas with travel to top getaways like Florida and California. Getting to this point has been a long process for the airport including getting the tarmac ready for handling jets. This involved extending the main runway by almost 1,000 feet. The extension project began six years ago in December 2005 and went into its final phase in June of 2009. According to Wicomico County, non-stop service out of Salisbury will begin in February.
