Letter: Don't give up on flights out of Chico Municipal Airport (KCIC)

We've been following recent letters in the E-R regarding Chico Municipal Airport. We've started our travels from Chico for several years, and would continue. The main reason is the staff, both TSA and SkyWest folks. Kind, competent and relaxed, these staff make the start of any journey a pleasure.

We are distressed that these good folks may soon not have jobs.

We agree with Helen Harberts, who wrote that the delays originate in San Francisco. We've waited there extra hours while the aircraft is re-routed to one or two other cities before returning us to Chico. We don't know the reasons: SFO construction, Federal Aviation Administration or the carrier. SkyWest doesn't seem to have enough aircraft.

Chico rightly values its hometown friendliness and cooperation.

This airport is another flower in the bouquet, and staff deserve to be supported. Let's get on-board and raise our voices to retain air service to San Francisco and maybe Los Angeles. There must be other flyers here who will rally for our Chico employees.

Oh, yes, and let's get a coffee machine or a food truck. Before those early flights people look as if they'd mug us for our caffeine.
