Business Professor Cited in Story on Pittsburgh Airport's Investment in Startup Airline

TribLive interviewed Daytona Beach Campus College of Business Professor of Economics and Finance Dr. Bijan Vasigh for a story about the Pittsburgh International Airport investing $3 million into small startup airline OneJet in order to help expand its services.

OneJet offers nonstop service to regional destinations that larger airlines don't fly to, which plays a key role in the Pittsburgh airport's comeback strategy.

"Smaller airports have no choice (to grow) except giving some kind of incentive," Vasigh said.

The story is titled "Looking to grow its airport, Pittsburgh invests $3M in startup OneJet."
