The Quad City International Airport is asking businesses to promote flying rather than driving to other airports.
Michelle O'Neill reports the goal is to increase passenger traffic and help the local airport thrive.
Over the last six years, traffic at the Quad City Airport has dropped more than ten percent. Part of the problem is many people drive to Chicago before they take off. So, Marketing Representative, Cathie Rochau, says the airport decided to create the "Fly Local Alliance." It got input from the Chamber of Commerce Air Service Committee before rolling it out.
