Visitors to the site can expect to find the most up-to-date information on airlines, destinations, parking, travel tips and TSA. In addition, Canadian travelers, who comprise 85 percent of the airport’s passengers, can access information on border wait times, web cams and exchange rates.

“Our bi-lingual airport website continues to be our main tool for attracting and serving passengers, and it has been incredibly successful,” said Garry Douglas

, chamber president. “For example, Allegiant receives more connections to its website from ours than from any other airport website.

And it’s a primary portal for economic development and other queries about the airport as well.”
