We have heard rumors that the GE move of their headquarters to Boston has required them to move their corporate jet fleet to Hanscom, not leaving room for Rectrix fleet. As a result Rectrix will be moving their fleet to ORH. At the current time, we have been trying to get a comment from Rectrix without success.
Lets hope that this is [...]
We have been hearing for some time that Rectrix, the FBO at Worcester, may be looking to starting commercial service. Here is a quote from an article today in the Cape Cod Times:

Let’s face some facts.
We have an airport with no airlines with no passengers. We are dam lucky that we have JetBlue taking a big chance on Worcester. I am thankful that we are getting this chance.
Some people expect day 1 for Worcester to have the same prices as Boston? JetBlue has been flying there over ten years and has 120 flig [...]
Today JetBlue made their May and June (thru the 18th) pricing available on line. Personally I think the best way to look up prices is on their BestFareFinder page . Looking quick it looks to me that average price is approximately $200 each way to Florida.
