Adirondack Region now accessible by major airline Plattsburgh, N.Y. - The Adirondack Region of Upstate New York becomes an international port-of-call on June 24, 2010 when US Airways Express, operated by Colgan Air, Inc. begins service between Plattsburgh and Boston. Adirondack Regional Tourism Council President Michele Powers said the new service will provide easy access to the six-million-acre Adirondack Region including Lake Champlain, Lake Placid and Whiteface Mountain. The new service will fly between Plattsburgh International Airport (PBG) and Boston's Logan International three times during the week and twice on weekends. "The launch of US Airways Express service is an exciting development for the North Country, taking us to the next stage of development at Plattsburgh International Airport," stated Garry Douglas, President of the Plattsburgh-North Country Chamber of Commerce. "Our success over the last two years has stood out nationally and attracted interest from a number of major carriers, but US Airways Express is the one that has stepped forward and decided that this market offers a real opportunity. The others are watching, meaning success with US Airways Express can lead to other destinations and carriers in the future. It's up to us and we need to embrace and support this new service." As a special incentive to travelers, the airline plans to double their Dividend Miles between June 24 and August 9. The new US Airways Express service between Plattsburgh and Boston is currently available for sale at usairways.com or by calling US Airways Reservations at 800-428-4322.
