Governor Chris Christie thinks this is very good news.

During a news conference at Newark Liberty Airport, the governor said this will offer enhanced service to the people of South Jersey and Atlantic City, and all those folks who want to come and visit Atlantic City for convention and vacations.

“The United Airlines announcement is another important milestone for Atlantic City,” Christie said. “We’ve been working with legislative leaders to look for new ways to expand service and opportunity – both economic and otherwise in the Atlantic City area.”

Christie also said renewed efforts are underway for Atlantic City to continue to grow and prosper and for the citizens of South Jersey and the whole state to benefit from that future growth.

“In the end it’s up to the people and businesses of Atlantic City and South Jersey as to the success or failure of our venture,” he stressed. “But I don’t think it can be said any longer that the folks, in the state capital and north of there, did not understand or care about the needs of South Jersey and Atlantic City.”
