Unnamed air carrier shows interest in Detroit's City Airport
Detroit's Coleman A. Young International Airport, also called City Airport, might soon be seeing passengers for the first time since 2000.
From the Detroit Free Press:
Jason Watt, general manager of the Coleman A. Young International Airport, told the City Council on Thursday that the city has a letter of intent from a carrier interested in re-establishing scheduled passenger travel. He would not publicly identify the company.
The facility is still open for private pilots and cargo carriers, the Free Press reports, but prior to Thursday's anonymous show if interest, the airport's future wasn't looking particularly bright as city officials work to scale down Detroit's budget.
