Airport Authority discusses fire station

VALDOSTA — At its monthly meeting Wednesday morning, the Valdosta-Lowndes County Airport Authority discussed the ongoing construction on the airport’s new fire station.

With the Authority signing the final beam last Wednesday, construction is proceeding smoothly. In May, the new fire station is scheduled to be open for use, while the old fire station will be torn down.

The Commemorative Air Force, a non-profit organization dedicated to preserving combat aircraft and the history behind them, plans to bring “Fifi,” billed as the world’s only flying B-29 Superfortress, to the Valdosta Regional Airport from March 31 through April 2, along with other aircraft.

The authority also discussed the yearly audit report, which found nothing out of the ordinary.

Air traffic for the month of January was down one from last January to 1,310. Enplanements for January were 2,445, down from last January’s 2,569.

Rental car revenue continues surpassing expectations, despite expectations being revised.

The next meeting of the Valdosta-Lowndes County Airport Authority is scheduled for 8 a.m., March 12, Valdosta Regional Airport. It is open to the public.
