Discount carriers' expansions could open door to further growth at CVG

Vacation routes could lead to business growth

HEBRON, Ky. – New flights coming to the airport include routes to Vegas, Orlando and Fort Lauderdale, great for vacationers, but what about the business traveler, the mainstay of the economy?

New low-cost carriers like Frontier and Allegiant, while now largely competing for leisure travelers, are leaving the door open to future flights through other carriers, important as the airport tries to regain some of the service it has lost over the last few years.

“All boats rise in a high tide,” Michael Mann, vice president of AAA Corporate Travel Service, said. “It’s an upside for everybody.”

How these new carriers are received could influence the future of CVG, said Doug Moorman, an economic development consultant and former Chamber executive.
