Business Professor Comments on Impact of Charter Flight Operator Expanding Service in Florida


Dr. Bijan Vasigh, professor of economics and finance at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University's Daytona Beach Campus, was interviewed for a story in Naples Daily News titled "Naples Charter Flight Operator Adds Orlando, Punta Gorda to Its Scheduled Service Menu."

"We've seen significant consolidation in the airline industry,” Vasigh said. With fewer major airlines to compete with each other, service to many smaller cities has declined over the years. “That has created a niche for smaller carriers to fill.”
