‘The trend of increasing activity at both Port Columbus and Rickenbacker demonstrate the vital services these airports provide to the Columbus community,’ said David Whitaker, Vice President of Business Development & Communications. ‘All indications are that 2007 will be equally strong or better which is very encouraging.’

Port Columbus provides 180 daily non-stop flights to 37 airports. Air carriers include Air Canada Jazz, American, Continental, Delta, JetBlue, Midwest Connect, Northwest, Southwest, United, US Airways/America West, USA3000 and the regional affiliates associated with many of these major airlines.

Rickenbacker reported a 19.7% increase in December cargo to close the year at over 250 million pounds, a 0.7% increase over the 2005 figure. Rickenbacker also handled a 32.3% increase in commercial cargo aircraft landings during 2006. Rickenbacker is a multi-modal cargo airport that features an impressive network of freight forwarders and cargo airlines such as FedEx, UPS, Evergreen International, Kalitta and Atlas as well as a US Foreign-Trade Zone and numerous industrial parks.
