WORCESTER, MA – Today U.S. Congressman Jim McGovern (D-MA) joined business and local leaders at Worcester Regional Airport to celebrate the completion of their 20,000th charter flight. To celebrate the milestone, a charter jet was given a water cannon salute as it taxied to the Aerodrome terminal.

“Today I am proud to celebrate Rectrix’s 20,000th flight, Worcester Regional Airport’s continued growth, and the strong partnerships which have made it possible,” Congressman Jim McGovern said. “Worcester Airport is key to a vibrant and growing Central Massachusetts economy and I have been proud to work with Rectrix and our region’s business and elected leaders every step of the way. I look forward to building on this exciting milestone as Worcester Airport continues to grow and strengthen our region’s economy in the years ahead.”

“The entire Rectrix team is so pleased to achieve this milestone and mark the moment here in Worcester. Our Aerodrome facility at ORH has been a source of tremendous growth for us since it opened in late 2015—and designating this airport as our maintenance base-of-operations this past year was indicative of that success,” said Rectrix CEO Richard Cawley. “We are committed to being a partner to Massport and Worcester and look forward to seeing continued success at ORH in the coming years as the airport’s new CAT III instrument landing system comes into operation.” 

“Rectrix has been and continues to be a strong partner for us to have at Worcester Regional Airport,” said Worcester Airport Director Andy Davis. “They have brought new energy to the airport and stimulated substantial growth, which builds upon the strategic plans we have for the airport’s future and helps to improve the experience for the passengers we serve here every day.”
