You can get there from here

I've always preferred to fly out of SLO rather than drive to one of the bigger airports, but have been frustrated at times by the "you can't get there from here" syndrome.
This week, though, came two pieces of good news for air travelers to SBP (and residents on those occasional times we want to leave paradise).
Delta will begin daily non-stop service to Salt Lake City in June, which provides not only a quick trip to the Rockies (fresh powder, baby!) but also opens up lots of new connection options to get to the East Coast and other points. Read more about it here.
A new air carrier is eyeing charter-like service but at prices closer to flying commercial. Point2Point Airways would provide non-stop flights to California cities
not served by commercial flights out of SLO -- perfect for the frequent or business traveler -- but needs a guarantee of enough business before it can start up in June. Read out story on the service here.
And happy flying.
