Business travel will have a big influence on Pangborn Airport’s
future success as a regional hub. That was the message conveyed yesterday at a meeting organized for area business
leaders in Wenatchee…
Mike Boggs is the Vice President of Air Service Consulting for the firm of Mead and
Hunt, the company helping in the Airport’s strategic planning process. Boggs and Senior Air Consultant, Jeffrey
Hartz both agree that Pangborn Airport’s plans for extending the main runway are critical to attracting other
commercial airlines to the area. Wenatchee Bureau Chief Steve Hair reports . .
The two men talked with
reporters prior to Wednesday’s meeting at the Confluence Technology Center. Mead and Hunt was commissioned to
conduct the Airports needs assessment study. Boggs says his main focus is in analyzing air service needs at small
airports across the country . .
