We had commercial air service, and it went to Kalamazoo. Will we ever have it again?
What about UPS and FedEx operations?
(Multiple, similar questions are grouped together.)
There are no plans currently for passenger service at the Battle Creek Executive Airport at Kellogg Field. Our services are based on flight traffic, and the fact that we have a lot of students, via the Western Michigan University College of Aviation; it is difficult and expensive to add commercial/passenger travel. However, as one of the busiest airports for general aviation, we can take on services like that of large military aircraft.
FedEx recently made a large announcement about service in Portage, but we continue to market Battle Creek’s airport. Duncan Aviation’s work helps with this, as well as WMU’s current expansion, expected to double the number of students here.
