SARANAC LAKE — Some businesses have joined a push for commercial airline service between New York City and the Adirondack Regional Airport.

The Adirondack Daily Enterprise reported that Adirondack Health, North Country Community College, Paul Smith’s College, the Trudeau Institute, the Wild Center and others have joined the effort. They’re asking local officials to petition the U.S. Department of Transportation for a fourth subsidized flight under the Essential Air Service program.

Proponents of adding a flight to New York City claim it would help the local economy.
