Florida’s Great Northwest at New Airport

by November 3, 2008 • 2 comments

As reported by newpcairport.com:

Florida’s Great Northwest recently hosted its 7th Annual Focus Northwest Florida Event which included a stop at the site of the new Panama City/Bay County International Airport.

The event provided site selection consultants, investors, developers and business executives from all over the world an opportunity to learn about the region and meet the area’s business and political leaders.

The 2008 event is believed to have been the largest site-selection consultant event held in the United States with 40 consultants attending from 13 different states and one consultant from France.

The group heard briefings from Airport Executive Director Randy Curtis, PBS&J’s Darren Larson and Bay County Economic Alliance Executive Director Ted Clem about the progress of the relocation project and what to expect at the completion of construction.

Afterwards, several members of the group got a bird’s eye view of the project via helicopter.

Progress of the airport is great news. Have any airlines committed to servicing the airport?

There are a couple in the works, but none announced yet. I’ve been told that they are very close but that an announcement won’t be made until a few months before the airport is ready to open.
