Indiana airport executives from Evansville-Vanderburgh Airport Authority, Fort Wayne-Allen County Airport Authority, Indianapolis Airport Authority, South Bend International Airport partnered in support of Governor Eric Holcomb's proposal to have $5 million a year available in Indiana’s biennial budget for air service development.  

"In today’s 21st century economy, flying allows Hoosiers to conduct business on a regional, national and global scale. Flights – in particular, direct flights – provide a critical quality of life amenity that makes it easier to attract new companies and for businesses to attract and retain top talent. That’s why we’re working diligently to expand Indiana’s direct flight options, in turn helping Indiana’s economy reach new heights"
