Boardings at the Redmond Airport are up about 5% from July of 2011 to July of this year. 

 

Airport Manager Kim Dickey says the improving statistics means they could get some grant money to help get more flights into Redmond from other locations.  "Most of the flights operating out of here have been very, very full. Which is great. And I think we have a very strong case to get either an additional flight or even possibly new service. We have applied for a grant, and we hope to hear something maybe by the end of the month. If we are successful in obtaining that grant, what that would for is, is help us advertise to either an existing carrier or potentially a new carrier to add a new service or route."

 

Dickey says the demands for routes include going to Southern California, Las Vegas and Phoenix.

 

She also says since the cost of jet fuel is so high, that is one hindrance for carriers to add routes.

Help Puerto Rico

Most organizations are asking for cash, rather than supplies, so they can route help to where it’s needed most more quickly. Here are some of the largest groups with campaigns underway:
