Catherine WheelerOgdensburg officials review three airlines for new flight service contract

Three airlines are vying to become the next air carrier in Ogdensburg.

Breeze Airways, Boutique Air and Contour Airlines have all submitted bids for service at Ogdensburg International Airport. Contour is the current provider.

Each airline has proposed where the flights will go, how often they will operate and how many passengers they can carry per flight.

The Watertown Daily Times reports that the Ogdensburg City Council voted to support Breeze Airways. Breeze proposes daily flights to and from Dulles International in Washington DC with 138 passenger planes. However, Breeze does not yet have an agreement with a major airline. Without one, passengers traveling beyond DC would have to book separate connecting flights.

The Times reports that the leadership of the Ogdensburg Bridge and Port Authority also favors Breeze. Officials say the airline’s plan is consistent with the vision to expand the Ogdensburg airport, which is currently undergoing a multimillion-dollar expansion and renovation.

OBPA officials will meet this Thursday to make their final decision. The final decision will be made by the U.S. Department of Transportation, as the airport receives federal grants to support air travel.
