APPLETON, WI- The Outagamie County Regional Airport could soon have a new name. Airport administrators made their case to a special committee on why a name change could increase traffic and business at the airport. Airport leaders are doing whatever it takes to increase ridership and that could mean possibly changing the name to Appleton Regional Airport. County leaders say this is not the first time the board has considered a name change, but with the information they have now it's a strong possibility.
"Our airport team has done a great job at marketing our airport, but ultimately we have to give them direction and provide governance on it," says Committee Chair Tanya Rabec.
Ridership split into three catergories: regional, state, and global. But it's people from out of state that may stay away from the airport.
