E'town Works to Finalize New Airline Deal

Elizabethtown Regional Airport was abuzz Monday as crews worked feverishly to finish roughly $5 million worth of infrastructure upgrades to the airport by next month. In addition to a deeper overlay on the 6,000-foot-long runway, the airport is making improvements to its lighting system and its weather service program, said Joe Yates, chairman of the Elizabethtown Airport Board. Elizabethtown City Council got an intimate look at the changes at the airport during its work session, in which the board and its consultant, Luke Schmidt, updated city officials on an aggressive plan to attract a major airline by the end of the year.
