“The phenomenal growth in March traffic at Toledo Express Airport is a testament to the continued growth in the local economy and increased demand for air service in this region,” said Paul Toth, President and CEO of the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority. “In particular, the success of American Airlines’ new service to Charlotte is a direct result of the terrific community response to new air service at Toledo Express. Thanks to this route’s success, airlines are continuing to evaluate new service to this region, which means we need the community’s support now more than ever. Let’s continue to build on the momentum we’ve seen over the past five consecutive years of passenger growth and let the airlines know there is demand for new air service at Toledo Express Airport.”
