North Central West Virginia Airport Exceeds Goal for Enplanements in 2013

BRIDGEPORT -

The numbers are in for the amount of enplanements the North Central West Virginia Airport had this year.

More than 11,000 people flew out of the airport in 2013.

The goal for the year was 10,000 and Benedum Airport Authority president Ron Watson said that the amount is thanks in part to the airport's partnership with Allegiant Air.

Allegiant started non-stop flights to Orlando in November.

The airline has recently extended it's stay at the North Central West Virginia Airport until August. Watson said next year the goal is 10,001.

That amount of enplanements will qualify the airport for Federal Aviation Administration funding.
