Regional jet service will continue to feed into larger aircraft, have longer hauls, and provide more work for air carrier pilots. This means that regional jets will add to the increased flight activity mentioned earlier.
Another result of regional jet service will be increased competition and, therefore, we hope, lower fares. In other words, regional jets are encompassing all the qualities that business travelers are demanding. As an operator in a market that needs this type of service, I'm very excited about the air service possibilities that these jets are capable of introducing to smaller communities. To passengers, a higher quality of service means jet service.
