Atlantic Coast may start discount air service

Print More

The only low-cost air carrier to serve Burlington International Airport could soon have some competition. Atlantic Coast Airlines currently operates United Express commuter planes for the bankrupt United Airlines. But Atlantic Coast says it can run the same routes for 30-40% lower fares.

Atlantic Coast officials say they’ll honor their United contract for as long as it remains in force. JetBlue currently is the only discount airline that serves Burlington.
