To recruit a non-stop San Francisco Bay Area Flight to/from Pangborn Memorial Airport in East Wenatchee, WA, airlines must see broad community support, including proven demand. Current flight data shows the demand, so now we must show community support. Pledge Now to show your support.
The Air Service Investment Program is a partnership in which financial risk is shared between the airline, the community, and the federal government. The community contributions are combined with a Federal Grant into a pool of funds from which the airline can draw if—and only if—revenue does not cover expenses during the first two years. If service is successful, remaining community funding will be returned to community investors at the end of the two year period.
The Manson Chamber of Commerce supports this effort and we believe that this would encourage growth in our local tourism business and facilitate travel directly to and from the entire North Central Washington area. This program has been successful in a number of other communities and we firmly believe that it will also have a high degree of success in our region. We are encouraging our members to consider pledging and the deadline is coming up soon (April 30).
