Airport Development & Air Service Enhancement
The Regional Air Service Enhancement (RAISE) Committee, whose activities are coordinated by staff and for which EDA serves as fiscal agent, continued to be a cohesive and responsive Peninsula regional group. Each locality actively participates through its Economic Development Director and EDA Board member representative. Each locality funded the RAISE fund through the designated funding formula in current year budgets under a Cooperation Agreement approved by all. A new Transportation Services Agreement was approved with Frontier Airlines, ensuring continuation of this successful and popular service to and from Denver. Other opportunities included continued work with PEOPLExpress, and exploration of new opportunities and strategies resulting from a Leakage Study commissioned by the Peninsula Airport Commission (PAC). The RAISE Committee continued to work closely with PAC and the Air Service Support Group to pursue desirable air service development.
