Good day, Salem McNary Field has been selected again for commercial air service starting in June of 2007. Should this article be updated to reflect that? Thanks, --Trashbag 14:11, 25 March 2007 (UTC)
Yes, Salem should be moved into the list of Primary ariports, now that Airline service has returned. Estimated yearly boardings are about 25,000 per year. 188.8.131.52 (talk) 21:56, 17 March 2008 (UTC)
Actually, no it should not. As Zyxw pointed out to me on my talk page he explains:
"The Role column is based on the airport categories defined in the FAA's National Plan of Integrated Airport Systems (NPIAS) Report for 2007-2011 . According to the FAA, "commercial service airports are defined as public airports receiving scheduled passenger service and having 2,500 or more enplaned passengers per year".  This is then further broken down into "Primary" (10,000+ enplanements per year) and "Non-Primary" (2,500 to 10,000 enplanements per year). There are a number of airports in the U.S. which have scheduled commercial airline service but do not meet this requirement."
