HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (AP) - Huntsville International Airport,
recently rapped for having the most expensive airfares of any U.S.
airport, has applied for a grant to recruit a low-fare carrier.
The board that runs the airport has agreed to pursue a grant of
up to $2 million from the federal Department of Transportation that
would be used for incentives and other recruitment tools to attract
a low-fare carreir.
The DOT recently reported that Huntsville's $505 per person average airfare was the highest in the country in the first quarter, compared to the national average of $315.
The airport has had three low-fare carriers previously, but the
longest any of them operated was 16 months.
