For the first time in two years, Massachusetts transportation officials have lured commercial airline service to Worcester Regional Airport by waiving landing, jet bridge and terminal fees for two years. Thanks to those incentives plus additional funding, Direct Air will offer six weekly flights to Florida beginning Nov. 22. State Secretary of Transportation Bernard Cohen hopes the new service will stimulate economic development in Worcester as well as alleviate some of the crowding at nearby Boston Logan International Airport. The airport is reportedly in talks with other carriers for additional service.
