70 Groups, including five in Columbia and Adair County, support new airline service at Elizabethtown Regional Airportthrough the Partnership for Central Kentucky Airline Service
The Elizabethtown Airport Board says that there is very substantial support for new commercialairline service at the Elizabethtown Regional Airport (EKX).
During the past several months, the Airport Board's consultant, Luke Schmidt, has met with numerous government jurisdictions, chamber boards andindustrial development boards throughout the 24 county Elizabethtown Regional Air Service Market. During these meetings and presentations, Schmidthas presented the project as a means to further connect the entire region to the global economy.
In addition, groups throughout the region have recognized the value that new airline service will bring in terms of providing an additional selling point forprospective new businesses and industry, thereby helping to create thousands of new jobs in the future, Schmidt says.
As of July 16, 2007, 70 organizations, including four in Columbia and Adair County, have formally considered and passed resolutions of support for the development of new airline service at EKX. In addition, over 100 letters of support have been received from elected officials, business and industry leaders and individuals.
Joe Yates, Chairman of the Elizabethtown Airport Board said, "The Board is pleased with the overwhelming support that it has received from all of theseorganizations.This support clearly indicates that the region is ready to embrace new airline service."
Luke Schmidt said that outreach efforts have also extended to Fort Knox. "This effort has truly become a regional project in every sense of the word."
