Thursday, May 29, 2008

CASPER, WY – Casper / Natrona County International Airport officials announced the receipt of a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Air Cargo Study/Master Plan Grant. The Study will inventory the existing air cargo operations, identify air cargo opportunities, provide forecasts for future cargo activity, and determine facility requirements necessary to meet the increased activity level.

“Air cargo is very, very significant at the Airport, with Federal Express, UPS, and DHL all having a presence,” said Glenn Januska, Airport Manager. “With tens of millions of pounds of freight coming through the Airport each year, and with increasing year-to-year growth, the goal of the study is to ensure we have adequate facilities to accommodate the air freight operations and to take advantage of cargo development opportunities. With feeder service from around the State, the Airport’s cargo operations not only support the local economy, but the economy of Wyoming as a whole” said Januska.

The Airport currently has feeder service to and from: Cody, Jackson, Sheridan/Gillette, and Rock Springs, Wyoming; Hayden, Colorado; and Scottsbluff, Nebraska.
