airlines to Key West

What are the carriers that fly into Key West airport? When I flew down a few years ago from Wash DC I changed planes in Ft. Lauderdale.

American, Air Tran, Delta Continental and US Air. I think United also shares the Continental Flights. Continental flies through Fort Lauderdale. Delta via Atlanta, Air Tran via Orlando and AA via Miami.

Cape Air flies several times a day from Ft. Myers

Gulfstream International (dba Continental Connection) flies from Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, West Palm Beach and Tampa

US Airways Express flies seasonally 2 flights a day from Charlotte. There is no service after Memorial day until mid-October.

I recommend the cheapest flight you can get from your home city. If you want to fly in on a jet, Delta, AirTran and US Air use them. Everything else is a prop,ranging from 9 seats (Cape Air) to 70 seats (AE).

tip-

on American Eagle they boarded (and exited) from the rear of the plane. So if you can't wait to get out on the EYW tarmac and grab a cab to your favorite bar, reserve seats in the back of the plane.

When I fly directly to KW (as opposed to driving from FLL), I always get the best rates from NYC on American/American Eagle.
