Bangor International Airport (BIA) hit bottom in 1998 when Continental discontinued service to Portland and Delta replaced its large jets with its prop-driven subsidiary, Comair. According to Jeff Russell, the airport's marketing director, things are now beginning to pick up, with this being a year of transition. Thanks to US Airways and Pan Am, daily service to New York starts this week and flights to Pittsburgh and Chicago begin next month. According to Bob Ziegllaar, the airport's director, the airport serves 425,000 people a year, and last year 35 percent of available seats out of BIA went unsold. The goal is to increase the number of customers to 750,000 over three years.
