The airport had been on a roll, with several nonstops being added to Boise. Idahoans benefitted from nonstops to Dallas, Atlanta, Nashville, and other prominent cities. Years ago, folks would have to catch the once-daily flights to Chicago to get to the east coast.
Boise was not the only airport to get the boot. Kalispell, Montana, was the other city. Nonstop flights are essential both to airports and their cities. The more nonstop flights to popular destinations, the more businesses are drawn to those cities. Boise has been hurt by its limited access to nonstop flights in the past. Folks would first have to fly to Salt Lake, Phoenix, or Denver before flying to another destination.
Jet Blue has announced more trimming of its routes due to labor shortages, Covid recovery, and the high fuel cost. The carrier will now suspend flights from San Jose to Boston and others, reports Paex.aero.
Labor issues are not unique to the airline industry, as most employers struggle to find workers. Customers are beginning to live with the new normal of longer wait times for service at restaurants and other places.
