MAJOR IMPROVEMENTS TO OUTAGAMIE COUNTY AIRPORT

Over $1million in improvements and a new flight announced

March 2, 2009

Appleton, WI — Congressman Steve Kagen, M.D. and Airport Director Marty Lenss announced major improvements to the Outagamie County Airport today expanding both the airport and flight opportunities.

This morning at 8:30AM United Airlines began their first non-stop flight from Appleton to Denver. Planes seating 50 passengers will fly to Denver 7 days a week, offering connections to 358 other daily departures including 20 international flights.

Congressman Kagen announced this morning that he has secured $1,045,000 in the 2009 Omnibus Appropriations Act passed by the U.S. House of Representatives for improvements to Outagamie County Airport. The bill must still be passed by the Senate and signed by the President to become law.

“The expansion of the airport and their flight offerings will create jobs and opportunity in our area,” said Congressman Kagen. “This is a terrific day for our entire community and another step towards economic recovery.”

“United Airlines non-stop service to Denver provides residents of Northeast Wisconsin a convenient first class gateway to the Mountain West and beyond.” said Airport Director, Marty Lenss.

Outagamie County Airport plans to use the funds Kagen secured to expand the terminal ramp to make up for space lost to terminal building expansion and to provide space for a new passenger boarding bridge necessary to accommodate larger jets. The fund will also be used to provide security upgrades such as closed-caption television and a perimeter card access system to comply with federal law, expand TSA checkpoint areas, and rebuild and electronically control the existing TSA area.
