Please consider the true costs associated with driving to an alternate airport. A study commissioned by BTR found that it cost the average business traveler an additional $200 to drive to an alternate airport when the value of the passenger's time, vehicle wear and tear (or rental car), and more expensive parking are all considered. And what can be more convenient than to fly BTR and Land at Home!
When travelers support BTR, it improves our prospects for sustaining and/or expanding air service. Airlines follow passengers, which is why passenger behavior is the most significant factor in determining a community's air service.
