MISSOULA INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
SEEKS TO ESTABLISH
INTRASTATE AIR SERVICE NEED
The Public is urged to give comment
MISSOULA, MT. (October 5, 2011) Missoula International Airport announced today a request for the public’s input in regards to intrastate air service.
Cris Jensen, Airport Director, stated "One of the more requested air service enhancements we’ve received from the community has been instrastate air service, specifically to Billings, Montana." Jensen added "Due to the high volume of requests, we’re asking for the public’s assistance."
In order to attract a quality regional airline to serve Missoula, specific data and a level of community support must be established. To that end, the general public and the business community are invited to participate in an on-line survey. The brief survey’s results may aid in recruiting a regional air carrier, and provide information that will aid in their decision-making process.
A link to the on-line survey is accessible from the Airport’s homepage at www.flymissoula.com.
