TitleOutside the Airlines
Extended TitleKCI's Aviation Department looks to businesses beyond air carriers to grow vacant space and increase revenue.
AbstractWith the wthdrawal of American Airlines' overhaul base at Kansas City International Airport, the Aviation Department "wasted no time in finding businesses to fill the physical void and stimulate economic growth." The former space, once occupied by TWA and then American Airlines, has been leased by Jet Midwest, an airplane maintenance business, Smith Electric Vehicles that "has constructed a highly efficient assembly line for its environmentally conscious electric trucks," and Frontier Airlines. Includes a sidebar "The KCI Flight Pattern" that is a timeline for KCI and its operations with the last entry being "October 23, 2012: KCI will celebrate its 40th anniversary."
