GTRA Executive Director Mike Hainsey recently addressed the GTRA Board, discussing some hopefully bright news regarding the future of the airport. He foresees an increase in commercial air travel for both business and for pleasure in the next few years: “The air transportation system has been pummeled, so they are going to be doing things differently as they recover,” he said. “They’re going to be looking at markets where there is economic growth. The economic growth here has been huge. The airlines are aware of that. . . The rebound here will be faster than the nation as a whole,” he went on to say. “As far as facilities, you have everything you need for probably 20 years. Overall, you are in better shape than most places in the country.”
He went on to say, that, due to increasing demand for passenger flights, Delta plans to begin using larger, higher-capacity jets in the near future. Also, they are working on adding Westbound flights to the roster.
