We may never have this chance again as a region

As a business leader, your policy letter, along with all the others, will show national carriers that we are serious.  We need more direct flights to cities that matter, higher frequency of flights and larger aircraft.  This in turn, makes doing business with our region, easier, faster and less expensive. Now is the time.


Your success and our success as a region, will be achieved through your willingness to make a commitment to our own regional air service.  That commitment is reflected in your adoption of a Fly Local First policy that favors our region over the Chicago region.
