Downtown Worcesterwith Worcester Regional Airport tower in the background Worcester Regional Airport Worcester's entry into the world of aviation began inwhen city officials commissioned a study to examine suitable sites for the city's first airport.
On the list of probable sites was the land owned by a wealthy local citizen, Whitin Whitall. This two-runway airport opened for leisure travel on October 12, The Grafton airport was deemed too small to accommodate the air travel needs of the region.
The location of the present airport, Tatnuck Hill, an area that straddles the borders of Worcester, Leicester, and Paxton, was high on the commission's list. One problem noted by the commission and several prominent citizens was the weather: Despite this problem, the city eventually chose Tatnuck as the new site, and construction began in The airport was ceremoniously opened on May 4,Summerize massport started regular passenger service one week later on Summerize massport 10, The Grafton airport remained in operation untilwhen the owners, due to the dwindling traffic, decided to dismantle the airport.
The land was redeveloped as a residential neighborhood. It still sits, now mostly overgrown in the shadow of Worcester Regional. In the mid s and early s, major carriers, such as PiedmontNorthwest AirlinesContinentaland USAir all flew mainline jets into Worcester.
The small terminal had two ground level jetways built to accommodate the growth. But one by one, those carriers left. A succession of second-tier air carriers have come and gone over the last decade. The airline expanded to 4 flights per week in March The departure came as a huge surprise to the city as service was reported to be going great throughout Allegiant's entire tenure at the airport.
The flights were initially operated by Virgin America using Airbus A aircraft, however Direct Air was forced to return the aircraft in June to suffice Virgin's rapidly expanding domestic routes.
Due to this being a wet-lease agreement, there were times where the aircraft was unavailable and other aircraft had to be chartered for the flights. This became the first mainline service out of Worcester in over a decade.
The airline currently uses the seat Embraer for their flights, although occasionally they are substituted for the seat Airbus A With the airport's current terminal facility JetBlue can operate two aircraft at a time with the pair of jetways and ticket counters. A revamp of the defunct airline Air Florida had planned to fly out of Worcester at the beginning of as a scheduled charter operation but the airline never got off the ground.
Rectrix also plans to launch flights between Worcester and Cape Cod possibly as soon as the summer of with their newly established commercial airline operation, Rectrix Shuttle. The flight is expected to be once daily each way, continuing to Sarasota, Florida after a quick stop at BWI.
On February 28,JetBlue announced it will expand its service at the airport, adding a daily non-stop flight to New York City.
While JetBlue did not provide a start date, airline officials said the new flights would not begin until after the landing system is installed and operational allowing reliability for connecting passengers.
This leaves a projected start date for the service in the early weeks of On April 9,American Airlines announced it will begin daily non-stop service from Worcester to Philadelphia on October 4, Less than two months after the initial announcement, on June 4, American Airlines announced it would add a second daily flight and would be changing the schedule of the initial flight.
While a specific start date was not provided, representatives from Delta stated the flights would commence in August of Under the agreement, the city and Massport paid the operating deficit together.
The terminal also houses two baggage carousels and a TSA installed passenger and baggage screening system. Rectrix Aviation is the fixed-base operator at the airport. The geographic location of the airport, on top of the tallest hill in the city reaching approximately 1, feet above sea level, leaves Worcester on average with 40 more days of fog a year than nearby Boston.
The installation of the landing system also will include a jug-handle taxiway at the approach end of Runway Kennedy International Airportoperated with an Embraer E aircraft.
The JetBlue flights to Ft. Lauderdale and Orlando are also able to use the ILS. However, American Airlines ' announced flight to Philadelphia will be operated by an Embraer aircraft which will not be able to use the newly installed Category III system.
It will however be able to operate down to Category II minimums allowing for improved weather standards versus fog problems seen at Worcester in the past.
American confirmed plans of operating down to Category II standards and does not expect fog to be an issue with the new service.A leading news source for Massachusetts, breaking news, business, sports, health, arts & entertainment, politics, education, cars, jobs, real estate & more.
