Discount airline with $10 seat options sets definite arrival date; Skybus Airlines will begin service out of St. Augustine Airport on July 18.

St. Augustine Airport will begin offering commercial flights to Columbus, Ohio, in July when an upstart airline kicks off service with tickets as low as $10. Skybus Airlines will begin service July 18, with one flight a day flying to its Midwest...


The authority is building a hangar at the airport that Brunson said would serve as a base of operations for Skybus. The cost of the structure was not available Wednesday.

Having another airport in the area shouldn't hurt Jacksonville International Airport, the area's major commercial facility, said Michael Stewart, a spokesman for JIA. If Jacksonville continues growing, he said, St. Augustine could eventually become a reliever airport - a setup common in bigger cities in which smaller nearby facilities take over some flights.
