Tri Trying To Get Chicago, To Tri Cities Flights
The Tri Cities Airport is hoping a grant will help bring back a high demand destination to the Tri Cities. The airport is applying for a grant to open up a Tri Cities to Chicago route. The route is in high demand by business travelers and was cut due to route changes following 9/11. The return of a Tri to Chicago flight is expected to be a boost to economic development in the region. No word yet on which airline would provide the Chicago route. The grant application is due May 17 and the money would become available in the fall of this year.
