We've preached and we've been proud of our relationship with the Muskegon County Airport for the simple fact that we really have a jewel here when it comes to travel. We've also eluded to some great things happening at the airport and some with the potential to come, and they have. It's a very exciting announcement and one that will make traveling for business much easier for anyone in West Michigan with new flight times to Chicago beginning October 5th at 6a and 2:30p with returns at 2p and 9:15p. Now, there is no longer a need to head to one of the "big city's" for a flight. You can jump on a United flight right here in Muskegon and be pretty much anywhere in the country in half a day and get the work done you need without the need for an overnight or long layover. It's a great new option for travelers and it comes from an airport that's known for convenience, affordability and passenger friendly amenities like no other.
The word also came that the level of occupancy for flights into and out of Muskegon has increased substantially and that's good news too, because like any business with growth, comes opportunity for more, and more means that options will expand if people continue to use the Muskegon County Airport on a more consistent basis compared to the long and aggravating drive to Detroit or Chicago. Like many of the other things we are "Watching Go" in Muskegon, the Muskegon County Airport's growth is in lock step with the times and things here are looking up in more ways than one!
Add to the exciting news for business travelers the increased flights with S&S Casino Tours to Laughlin Nevada and Atlantic City New Jersey, which are just exceptional values for a quick get away, and the ease for a leisure traveler to not have to hassle with the headaches of a major airport when it comes to kids and crowds and everything else. The Muskegon County Airport is firing on all cylinders and there is much to be proud of when it comes to the hard work of so many people.
I met up with the airport Executive Director Jeffery Tripp to catch up on all the details and...well maybe even get our next round of hints as to what's to come for our hidden treasure in the travel world. Take a listen.
