$7M investment could bring potential for commercial flights at Connecticut's Sikorsky Memorial Airport

Commercial flight traffic at Sikorsky Memorial Airport could potentially return thanks to a $7 million investment, the city of Bridgeport and the Connecticut Airport Authority announced.
The CAA is taking a greater role in running the airport, which is currently operated by the city of Bridgeport.
The city of Bridgeport and CAA Tuesday announced the launch of next steps of capital development and an expanded partnership to maximize the potential of Sikorsky Memorial Airport as a state transportation resource.
Following a recent $7 million investment by the State Bond Commission to be primarily used for pavement rehabilitation on Runway 11-29, construction will soon begin to undertake necessary capital projects that allow for the development of potential commercial flights at Sikorsky Airport.
The city of Bridgeport and the CAA also announced ongoing discussions regarding an expanded partnership to develop and operate the airport.
