Airport Grant Process Includes Dollars For New Longterm Master Plan

Casper-Natrona County International Airport

Casper-Natrona County International Airport Manager, Glenn Januska, says its time for the airport to update its master plan and an FAA grant facilitating that was a topic of discussion this week with the Natrona County Commission.

“Typically we can’t get federal funding for projects unless the projects are shown on an airport layout plan which is the drawing that is the result of a master plan.”

That master-plan grant was one of three federal grants due next week and the airport sought approval from the county for their execution. The master plan, he says, is important and involves assessment of facilities and a 20 year forecast of passenger traffic. He says its been about eight years since their last update and now he suggests its time for a brand new one.

He says competitive airfares and a strong local economy have meant a consistent increase in air passenger traffic, with an over 22 percent increase this July over last.

He says United, Delta, and Alligiant have all made changes to accommodate more passengers and the airport continues conversation with Alligiant about the possible addition of a flight from Casper to Mesa, Arizona.
