Several area companies are signing on to a commitment to favor the Greater Binghamton Airport for business trips.

A new program asks businesses to sign a pledge to book 50 percent or more flights through the local airport, promote the company’s use of BGM on social media and book all flights through Broome County if they are within $100 of the ticket price of competing airports.

Currently, no commercial flights are using the local airport as runway improvements are being worked on. Delta Airlines is planning to resume regular flights once the runway work is done.

Recently American and United Airlines dropped operations at BGM.
