The last Allegiant flight to Florida out of Gary/Chicago International Airport is scheduled for Saturday, and after that the airport will be without a passenger carrier. Airport Marketing and Communications Liaison James Ward previously stated Allegiant Air reported a lack of demand led to its decision to end service.
Meanwhile the airport's 166-million dollar runway expansion, extending the seven-thousand foot main runway by 19-hundred feet, is scheduled for completion in December, which gets the airport ahead of a 2015 Federal Aviation Administration's mandate that all airports have at least one-thousand feet of safety area for planes. Members of the Gary/Chicago Airport Authority and members of the airport's Public-Private Partnership Committee are scheduled to hold a pre-proposal meeting tomorrow morning at 10am about the airports request of proposals for a public-private investment to invest in the airport and the the surrounding area.
