JetBlue has now been running flights between Worcester and Florida for more than a month. According to a recent presentation by MassPort officials, fares from Worcester are, on average, $50 to $60 more expensive than flights from Boston. Despite higher fares and the diversions of some Worcester flights due to weather (four have been diverted so far), state officials believe the flights are off to a relatively good start, averaging about 80 percent sold seats. And, according to a recent economic impact study, the airport will provide a boost for Central Massachusetts, generating 201 direct jobs and $196 million in direct spending over the next decade. So, this week's Flash Poll question asks:
Do you believe that future growth at Worcester Regional Airport will provide that much of an economic boost to the region?
