Small Cities Pay to Keep Air Travel

With airlines cutting back service in a weak economy, some cities
that are too big to qualify for federal help but too small to keep
the planes flying in have stepped up with ways to hang on: paying the
airlines, either directly or indirectly.

The cities, like Myrtle Beach, S.C., and Duluth, Minn., have tried
various strategies to keep their lifeline to the outside world.


Officials in Duluth are weighing whether to guarantee an airline that
a certain percentage of seats will be filled. Once those targets are
met, the city will profit.

"Anymore, the airlines don't want to take the risks," said Brian
Ryks, executive director of the Duluth Airport Authority. "But they
want all the rewards."
