Worcester Regional Airport to Add Flight to Washington, DC

Rectrix Commercial Aviation Services recently announced it will soon be starting Washington, DC, flights from Worcester Regional Airport, which is owned and managed by NEC member Massport.

Starting in 2017, Rectrix will offer passenger service from Worcester to the Baltimore/Washington International Airport, where service will continue to the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport in Florida. Rectrix joins JetBlue Airways, another NEC member, as the only airlines flying regularly out of Worcester. It marks the first time two airlines have been flying out of Worcester Regional Airport since 2002.

The announcement follows news that Worcester Regional Airport will receive a $7.7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation to increase capacity and fund additional taxiway construction.

Massport CEO—and NEC board member—Thomas P. Glynn said, “As the Commonwealth continues to see growth across the state, we at Massport are committed to ensuring that our gateways for the global economy – our airports – work to meet the needs of residents and visitors alike. This federal funding would not have been possible without the work of Congressman McGovern and the rest of the Massachusetts delegation and I thank them for this important investment.”

The New England Council congratulates Massport on the new flights and the continued improvement of Worcester Regional Airport and. Read more in MassLive and the Worcester Business Journal.
