Airport Budget Passed For Approval

According to the Spokesman-Review, Spokane International Airport directors yesterday voted unanimously to pass along a proposed $60 million budget to Spokane County and the City of Spokane for approval.

The 2011 budget, including $28  million for operations and $32.3 million for capital expenditures, is 5% higher than the 2010 budget but reportedly does not call for fee increases to the airlines or the public.

Airport parking generates 33% of revenues, airline terminal rents and landing fees 30%, and car rentals 17%.

The U.S. Air Force will lease airport ramp space and other facilities for $201,202 while the Fairchild Air Force Base runway is rebuilt.
