Back in May of last year I talked about Branson Airport (BKG) being the first privately owned airport. Since then, the airport has had some success (and some failures) in getting airlines to fly profitable routes to their airport.
Brett Snyder (aka Cranky Flier) wrote up a great piece on how the airport is looking to create its own airline…well kind of. They are looking to charter some regional jets from ExpressJet to fly to Branson from Austin, Des Moines, Houston, Shreveport, and Terre Haute starting in May.
