A little over a month ago, Surf Air, the small commuter airline that began flying in and out of the San Carlos Airport in June 2013, announced via a company press release that it planned to expand its local flights, to the consternation of residents and officials who had been pressuring the company to do just the opposite.
Members of the Surf Air working group, made up of local residents and officials, said they had received no advance warning of the announcement. Since the announcement, the group had been trying to meeting with Surf Air CEO Jeff Potter.
The group's members finally got that meeting on May 13, and the news was not good. Potter confirmed after the meeting that Surf Air is increasing the number of planes flying in and out of San Carlos from eight to 11, with flights increasing to 106 per week from 79 per week.
