OU airport key to business growth
(2008-02-12)
(WOUB) - Ohio University and Athens business leaders believe a bigger and better O-U airport is a key to a bigger and better local economy.

They gathered at the airport yesterday with area Congressman Charlie Wilson to talk-up their plans....which include a proposal for on-demand air service.

W-O-U-B Reporter Karen Hopkins was there, too...and filed this report...

The Athens Area Chamber is Commerce is working on a survey to determine interest in new flights.

An official says the on-demand service could start as early as 2009 if there's support and an airline comes in.
