Memphis airport expands incentives for new service
MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Memphis airport is hoping to draw smaller regional jets by expanding an incentive offering for new air service.
Airport President Scott Brockman told The Commercial Appeal (http://bit.ly/1DHAJxv ) the change would allow airlines such as Silver Airways, which operates 34-seat turboprops, to seek incentives
The two-year-old incentive program had been limited to qualifying service additions using 50-seat and larger aircraft.
The airport board also added $500,000 to the program fund, restoring it to $1 million after Southwest Airlines claimed $500,000 in incentives to serve five cities from Memphis.
