BREAKING NEWS: Stillwater airport receives grant to pursue commercial airline

WASHINGTON — The city of Stillwater will receive $447,000 to be used toward establishing commericial air services between Stillwater Regional Airport and Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport, U.S. Sen. Jim Inhofe announced Tuesday.

The city of Stillwater will receive a grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation's Small Community Air Service Development Program, Inhofe said.

The money will compliment significant local funds to be used to bring a commercial carrier to the Stillwater airport, Inhofe said.

"Commercial air services provide a critical access point to the global economy and support community development and economic expansion," Inhofe said. "These grants, when matched with local funds, will allow their communities to compete for commercial air services that may otherwise be unobtainable."
