Airport Director:
EAS is Lifeline for Rural Communities

Following is a letter Bradford Regional Airport Director Tom Frungillo sent to business and community leaders in the region:

As many of you have read of the ongoing debates concerning the FAA reauthorization bill and the Essential Air Service (EAS) program, there is still light at the end of the tunnel.

Senator Casey’s staff has reached out to us regarding the Essential Air Service (EAS) language in the compromised FAA extension and it very encouraging.

The Senator is still very much in support of the continuation of this important program for our region and the other airports at risk in the Commonwealth.

Senator Casey has been stalwart in working hard for Pennsylvania.

Please encourage your business contacts and friends to FLY BRADFORD! and support Senator Casey and Representative GT Thompson throughout this funding debate of our commercial air service program.

Also it’s important that you let Senator Toomey know we disapprove of his position on Essential Air Service (EAS).

EAS is not pork; it is a lifeline for rural communities to compete in the Global Economy.

EAS does not deserve to be the poster child in the budget debate.


Thank you.


Thomas C. Frungillo, C.M.
Airport Director
