Prescott reaches 10,000 passengers at airport
The City of Prescott on Sunday, Dec. 30, reached 10,000 enplanements for the year at Prescott Regional Airport.
Passenger No. 10,000 was Kay Steers of Wyoming. She was on the Prescott-to-Denver flight Sunday.
The 10,000-enplanement achievement is significant for the city, because it is the level that triggers significantly more federal grant money for airport improvements, including a proposed new airport terminal.
Steers won roundtrip tickets for two passengers for flights between Prescott and Los Angeles or Denver and gift bag from the Tourism Office, said John Heiney, the city’s Community Outreach manager.
The city kicked off the “Fly Prescott 10K” incentive program in November to encourage area residents to use the Prescott Regional Airport for its airline travel.
The city’s commercial carrier, United Express, offers daily roundtrip flights to Denver and Los Angeles. Flights can be booked online at United.com or on the United app on a smartphone. Customers should select airport code PRC for Prescott.
