Update on Airports in Southwest Missouri
The Springfield Business-Journal has a great update on the airport market in Southwest Missouri, after a recent expansion in Springfield and the opening of a new private airport in Branson. It seems that competition is benefiting the people of the region:
[Branson Airport Executive Director Jeff] Bourk, citing $99 flights from Branson Airport to Boston, agrees that the competition is likely helping to keep fares down.
“When you’re traveling, we want you to consider all your options and use what works best for you,” he said. “But with the fares that we’re seeing, there will be more and more people using both airports.”
