We sit down this week with Airport Manager Chris Kreig to talk about the expansion projects in the works, and the national spotlight on Allegiant Airlines in the wake of the 60 Minutes report over the airline’s safety record. Allegiant flies to 4 destinations in Florida from Plattsburgh.

The $93-million expansion project at Plattsburgh International Airport is moving full speed ahead with the construction of new U.S. Customs facilities that airport management hopes will lead to carriers wanting of fly international flights out of Plattsburgh in the near future. Work is underway on a new air cargo distribution center. Also, a new carrier, SkyWest has been chosen to fly daily flights to Dulles Airport in Washington, D.C. beginning in August.
