Air Service Development
A regional airport is critical to a community’s growth, prosperity and viability. Don’t believe it? Think about this: The airport is the first and last impression of our community, and the state of Alabama for many, when passengers arrive. As Alabama’s capital city, it is crucial for Montgomery to be accessible, particularly for the business of state government, economic development and military operations. The airport is the conduit to move people into the national air traffic network, connecting them with the world.
With its central location in the state, Montgomery Regional Airport is easy to get in and out of, and attendees can quickly get from the airport to their hotel or meeting venue. In 2017 the Montgomery Regional Airport announced a new non-stop flight to and from Washington, DC’s Reagan National (DCA), a perfect fit those looking for access to state government in the capital city, or access to the Air Force and technology communities here.
The Montgomery Regional Airport is perfectly positioned for growth, from a literal standpoint, with land all around it that can be developed for cargo, storage and other commercial air development projects. This will allow the airport to generate non-aeronautical business and diversify the airport’s revenue stream. Montgomery is also perfectly located centrally in the state between other aeronautical developments like Boeing to the north and Airbus to the south, and the land is primarily flat acreage that is development-ready.
