Airbuses and 737s return to the Medford airport

Medford, Ore.– For the first time in 15 years, Airbuses and 737s will be returning to the Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport.

Beginning in April, Airport Director Bern Case says United Airlines will bring their mainline aircraft to Medford on some daily flights from San Francisco.

According to Case, the steady increase in the airport’s travel numbers is responsible for the reintroduction of larger aircraft.

“We think that is a good trend,” says Case.  “It means we are filling the little planes.  They believe now that we can give them a really good load on the larger aircraft.”

Right now the small commercial planes that fly into Medford’s airport carry about 50 people, while 737s can carry upwards of 130 passengers.
