On December 12th, The Greater Florence Chamber of Commerce organized a luncheon with area business & industry leaders to discuss the Florence Regional and American Airlines flight schedules.
Part of the discussion included ways to improve commercial ridership from area businesses on flights in and out of the FLO airport and how we might improve daily flight frequency to Charlotte Airport (CLT).
Greg Atkins, Airline Consultant & Director at AilevonPacific, addressed the invitation only group of 20-25 business leaders that included representatives from Honda, Assurant, FMU, McLeod, FDTC, CVC, WestRock, GE Healthcare as well as county and state representatives. Mr. Atkins shared airport and flight statistics showing that American Airline flights in and out of FLO represent good performance and comparative or better to all other surround commercial airports when connecting in CLT.
Gregg Robinson, CEO of Florence County Economic Development Partnership shared the importance of growing the FLO airport flight schedules for our future economic development needs.
