Having cut most of its West Coast flights, Skybus Airlines is now looking to add shorter, more-profitable flights.

Niagara Falls, N.Y., Gary, Ind., and several greater-New York City area airports are among those reportedly talking to Skybus. An airline spokesman declined to comment, reiterating that Skybus continues to talk to a number of airports about adding service.

In another industry, Skybus Airlines might be able to take a breather: It’s carried more than 400,000 passengers in its first five months, is serving 12 cities with five planes and has attracted incentives valued at more than $100 million from Columbus and Greensboro, N.C., which is set to become the airline’s next operations hub.
