The Chippewa Valley Regional Airport is seeing a jump in airport passengers and that could mean it’s getting closer to seeing additional flight options. The airport says in the first six months of this year, it’s seen a 20 percent increase compared to the same period last year.
For now, there are only two arrivals and two departures a day to Chicago O’Hare with the airport’s United Airlines partner. But with a continued increase in passengers, that could change in the near future.
“It’s important for not just leisure travelers but it’s important for business travelers and the business community who are doing business in this global economy. Ensuring we retain the service means we need to grow it and have additional utilization.”
The airport says a contributing factor to the increase may be only two percent of its flights had to be cancelled since the beginning of this year.
There is currently no timeline for when additional flights could be added.
