Williams Gateway Airport in Mesa, Arizona adding more flights!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Teri Ellis at Homes Arizona Real Estate LLC

I suspect many of you living in the Phoenix Valley are aware of the impending flights to/from Mesa's Williams Gateway Airport, but many of those living out of our wonderful state may not know that very soon more opportunities to fly in/out of the East Valley will be available. 

As one who is living and loving the East Valley - Mesa, I am excited about the prospect of having an airport just 10-15 minutes from my home that doesn't charge for parking, that doesn't have long lines, and that is a smaller more user friendly place from which to fly. The East Valley/Scottsdale Tribune reported on Thursday, April 19, that flights/air routes to southern California, and to the midwest should be onboard by the fall. Vision Airlines may be booking flights from Scottsdale to North Las Vegas by June. According to the report, Vision wants to make Mesa airport a hub, adding several new routes and will be meeting with Williams Gateway officials next week to find out where the community wants to go. Some choices may include: Laughlin, Nevada and southern California (possibly Carlsbad).

Top vote getters are: Las Vegas, San Diego, Los Angeles, Denver and Chicago. SkyValue who has been shuttling passengers between Mesa and Gary, Indiana since December, announced in January plans to expand to the Los Angeles area. I vote for Burbank or for Long Beach because they are smaller airports. To read the entire report, check out:

Bottom line: Looks like we're getting more options for travel for those of us living in the Mesa, Gilbert, Queen Creek, Gold Canyon areas. Progress is good.

My parents flew in here from Gary, IN last month.  While I was standing there waiting for them, I felt like a kid in a candy store.  I left my home 10 minutes before they were due to land, drove right into the airport and was able to find a parking spot and was back home with my parents approximately 30 minutes after I left to pick them up.  Fabulous experience!!
