Redmond Mayor George Endicott says they weren't totally caught off guard by Allegiant Air's recent announcement to discontinue service in Central Oregon.  The Airport Manager had attended a couple of weeks before, hand where Allegiant managers talked about the higher costs of operating out of Redmond.  He says their business model favors cheap flights that include packages of car rentals and hotels; but people in Central Oregon were mostly just buying the cheap flights.  “And so I guess they figured they had more lucrative markets than ours; we just weren’t doing what they need to see, to make money.”  KBND: “Was that a blow to airport manager? She’s fairly new to the job, and kind of a big blow, right off the bat?”  Endicott: “Interestingly enough, it was about 13% hit, as I understand, and so they had to go back and scrub the budget pretty hard.   Some equipment aren't going to buy now, employee we were going to hire, not going to hire now.”  Mayor Endicott was a guest on "Your Town" this morning.
