Commercial airline to fly out of Pease

The Associated Press

PORTSMOUTH, N.H. - New Hampshire officials are expected to announce that commercial passenger air service is coming back to the Portsmouth International Airport at Pease.

The announcement is scheduled for Tuesday.

Airport officials say "having an airline provide flights to and from any community is hugely important. Families get convenient new options, area businesses get access to more customers."

WMUR-TV reported that several airlines have offered passenger service since Pease was certified as a commercial airport in 1992 but none has lasted.
