Senators Tim Kaine, Mark Warner and Congressman Bob Goodlatte announced that $750,000 in federal funding will be given to continue non-stop service from Roanoke Regional Airport.
The funding is helping the Roanoke Regional Airport Commission to bring new non-stop service from Roanoke to Dallas/Ft. Worth, Denver and/or Detroit.
They said that the Commission can use the finds for a revenue guarantee, a marketing program, and fee waivers.
We are proud to announce these grant dollars that will ensure the airport continues to offer flights that attract tourism and business and offer Virginians more travel options,” the Senators and Congressman said.
