Airport Director Bob Whitmer has a lot to talk about. Allegiant flights to Orlando have been doing very well. In October Allegiant will begin Direct Owensboro to Las Vegas Flights. In addition there should be an announcment very soon regarding new daily service to a "HUB" airport from Owensboro giving passengers the opportunity to fly anywhere in the world from the Owensboro Daviess County Regional Airport.

An airport expansion, revovation of the control tower, expansion of the terminal are other areas undergoing improvement in the next few months.

Bob spoke with me this morning on the Joe Lowe Morning Show on 1490 WOMI. I have posted part 1 of that interview here. Part 2 will be in another post.
