Funding To Help Restore Passenger Service At Kinston Jetport

The U.S Department of Transportation is providing federal funds to boost efforts to restore passenger air service at the Kinston Regional Jetport.

U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood, who recently visited the jetport, says Kinston will receive $350,000. It is one of two airports across the country to receive such funds.

First District Democrat Congressman G.K. Butterfield, up for re-election next week against Republican Ashley Woolard, said that while it is unlikely that these funds alone would be sufficient to restore passenger air service, this key federal commitment would make it easier to secure further funding.
