A Welcome from the Airport Director

GENE COSEY, TRI-CITIES AIRPORT
AUTHORITY EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR

Welcome to the inaugural My TRI News. Everyone here at the Tri-Cities Airport is excited to share, via this newsletter, the important issues and activities happening at your airport. We also want to hear back from you on how we can make your airport better for you.

The airport is a valuable community asset which contributes to the success of our region. Traveling from TRI is easy and convenient and connects you from your front door to the world. You can also bring others here to visit your businesses, conduct business, and visit family. As the world recovers from the COVID-19 pandemic, it is crucial that all of us work together to rebuild the region’s economy. This means supporting our local businesses and when you fly, make sure you FlyTRI.

The Tri-Cities Airport has been very blessed to receive funding under the CARES Act that will enable us to continue operating your airport and ensuring that our region’s connection to the world is here for us. Airport staff have done a phenomenal job in keeping the airport in excellent condition and ensuring that your travels through TRI are safe and secure.

Our primary goal at this point is to encourage the airlines to bring back additional flights as quickly as possible. As the airlines see demand for flights in our region return to normal and continue to grow, they will add flights back to TRI. Airport staff have worked with the airlines to decrease their costs, defer payments, and to help create a safe and secure environment for all passengers.

We highly value each and every one of our passengers here at TRI. No matter who you are, where you come from, or where you are going, you are key to our success and we want you to know you are welcome here. For those of you who have lived in the Tri-Cities region your whole life, thank you for always being a part of what makes our area so great. For those of you who are new to the Tri-Cities, thank you for making this region your home. Our Airport takes pride in being inclusive of all, welcoming of all, and in being part of building a great home for everyone.

Next time you fly, be sure to make flying Tri-Cities Airport your highest priority. This is your airport and we are always here for you.
