Land Acquisition, Noise Are Top Concerns in Plan for San Antonio Airport Expansion

Land Acquisition, Noise Are Top Concerns in Plan for San Antonio Airport Expansion | SAN ANTONIO XYZ | Scoop.it
Part of the problem is that the airport has not been a priority for San Antonio, Dickson said, so it's a matter of more closely connecting the airport to families.
Al Cannistra's insight:

IMO - big MISTAKE to make the airport bigger....  no matter what they do, it is still a city airport....  monies better spent marrying up with Austin and building a huge regional in between....   think beyond the small city concept that has been holding us back...

The findings are both quantitative and subjective, and come with the caveat that ranking the country’s airports is akin to ranking the trimmings and trappings of a giant basket of fruit.

San Antonio airport takes off with new nonstop flight to New York City

San Antonio airport takes off with new nonstop flight to New York City | SAN ANTONIO XYZ | Scoop.it
It appears United has started a trend. Five months after that company announced it was adding nonstop service from San Antonio to New York, another major airline is getting onboard. 
Al Cannistra's insight:

ABOUT TIME - San Antonio does not have a great position in the world of air travel...  lack of competition means higher fares - and might even make some companies move to Dallas...  sad we are the 7th largest city in the nation and have so little to offer in air transportation. Of course, things could improve with a new airport located between us and Austin - and a board with vision....
