Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport Gets Grant To Expand Destinations


Abraham Lincoln Capital Airport is getting a quarter-million-dollar federal grant to help it expand travel options for local flyers.

 

The money can be used to offer incentives such as marketing or ground services… like ticket-takers or baggage handlers… in order to attract carriers who would operate regular flights between Springfield and certain destinations. Airport director Mark Hanna says the top priority is to find a carrier to resume the seasonal service to Florida that ended when Direct Air went bankrupt.

 

The grant could also be used to establish regular service to Las Vegas or Phoenix, if the airport can find an interested carrier.
