A new Air Service Development Program may help attract more airlines to Mississippi airports. Legislation passed by the Governor authorizes the creation of the Mississippi Air Service Development Program. This program will work with airports in the state to try and find ways to give funding to airports that are seeking to expand or add airlines.

Clay Williams, Executive Director of the Gulfport-Biloxi International Airport, says this is the next step in growing commercial air travel. He says, "This would have the state involved and having the state of Mississippi behind this effort is very important. Air service development is an important part of our economy and Mississippians need access to the national transportation network." Williams says the initiative won't have any impact until next year when funding can be secured.
