New expansions will begin on the Kearney Regional Airport terminal by the end of 2022, including new bathrooms and baggage claim. "Air service is essential. You have to be able to get to and from your home airport in order to visit family or do business in this area. To bring people in, you've got to have it. This crew is committed to being here. Two years is just the start, I think we'll be able to develop a long-term connection with these guys so they will be here for the foreseeable future," stated Assistant Airport Director Steven Cole (NTV News, Kearney).
Denver Air Connection will begin air service on November 1, 2022, providing direct flights between Kearney and Denver. A total of 12 roundtrip flights to Denver will be offered per week. Visit www.flykearney.org to schedule your flights today!
