Have faith Northern Colorado. The hassles of traveling may be lessened thanks to a grant the Fort Collins-Loveland Airport just received. The idea behind the grant is to make ticketing, security screening and a streamline check in process for flights connecting to DIA more efficient.

The program is called the Small Community Air Service Development Program.


The Northern Colorado Business Report has more on the details.

The Fort Collins-Loveland Airport will receive a $221,500 grant from the United States Department of Transportation to be spent on the development of the "wingless flight program."

FNL was selected as one of 29 other airports for the funding made available through the Small Community Air Service Development Program. Seventy community airports applied for the grant.

The wingless flight program is FNL's effort to expand options for travelers in Northern Colorado. The program is designed to allow ticketing, check-in and security screening at FNL for connecting services out of Denver International Airport. This effort provides potential benefits including reduced environmental impacts, traveler convenience, and reduced capital investment for DIA.
