Regional Airport Spending, Remodeling Questioned

Posted: December 16, 2012 at 2:51 a.m.

I’m a business traveler who usually votes for anything to improve airport facilities. But the $2.7 million proposed budget for a new rental car wash facility at Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport and $300,000 in restroom renovations seems a bit excessive to this road warrior. Who will design this car wash, Moshe Safdie? And the men’s room just past XNA security has been adequate and uncrowded in my experience. My only suggestion would be to clean it more often.

I know people that drive down to little rock from northwest Arkansas for cheaper flights to Chicago or new York city.xna airport is loosing a lot of money with the expensive flight prices compared to other places that are an hour and half to less than 3 hours away that are a lot cheaper even after including spending money on gas to drive 2 and half hours to the airport and back home.

Tulsa is the place for me. Save an average of 700 dollars per flight. Know what they say about a fool and his money?
