Elmira Corning Regional Airport to Begin Daily, Direct New York City Service

Posted December 19, 2011

At a press conference held on December 16th, Chemung County Executive Tom Santulli and Ann Crook, Elmira Corning Regional Airport’s Director of Aviation, announced Delta Air Lines will begin a daily flight to JFK International Airport beginning in June of 2012.

“We have been working for a long time to bring service to New York City to ELM,” said Santulli.  “This once daily flight will be utilized by both business and leisure travelers, including those travelling internationally.”

“The number one request I get from our community for new service is for a direct flight to New York City.  I’m delighted to say that we have done it!  This new flight to JFK is only the most recent addition to Delta’s all-jet service at ELM.  Delta’s commitment to Elmira Corning will open New York’s Finger Lakes Region to the world,” added Crook.

The Chemung County Chamber’s Air Service Task Force is pleased with this latest development. “We applaud how persistent and aggressive the airport and County Executive Santulli have been in capturing a transportation service that’s crucial to our best economic future,” said Chamber President Kevin Keeley.

The daily service from JFK to ELM will be on a 50-seat CRJ regional jet operated by Pinnacle Airline, and will begin on June 7th. Tickets began being sold on December 17th.
