Merger Means Another Attempt at Funding Airport Improvements
Now that the merger of American Airlines and U-S Airways is moving ahead, Mayor Bartlett wants to revisit plans for upgrading airport facilities. He says the need is still there and it’s even more important because of the merger and the possibility of more planes coming here for maintenance.
Airport improvements were included in last year’s failed Vision 2 proposal. The mayor wants to form a committee with community and government leaders and work on formulating a different approach.
