August Airport Board Meeting

Enplanements

July saw all three airlines have positive growth months over last year.  The three combined average a 9.5% increase over July of 2011.  YTD we are up 4.8%

We are trending above the 9 year average in every month of the fiscal year so far.

Over the last two months we have had more enplanements than Lubbock.

Construction

Airfield

The painting contractor anticipates having all the painting completed by the second week of September.

Executive Hangars

The executive hangar construction is progressing currently with the concrete drainage gutters in Phase 3.  That phase should be completed in the next 2-3 weeks and Phase 4 should be started prior to the next airport board meeting.

The next apron reconstruction project has been accelerated.  Due to XCORs lease of the AMI hangar displaced pilots and aircraft will not have a location to store their aircraft.  We have asked Jones Brothers to begin work as soon as possible so we can have the greatest number of tenants displaced and moved back in prior to the AMI hangar being turned over to XCOR.

 

Northwest Taxiway Extension Project

Roadway work and utility work has begun and should be completed in the next 6-8 weeks. Construction has begun on the first two hangars.

Airport Parking

A parking discussion has been scheduled during the September 11th City Council briefings.
