The Western Reserve Port Authority and Youngstown/Warren Regional Chamber have come together to launch an electronic survey on air travel activity among local business leaders. The Port Authority, which manages the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport (YNG), is exploring several opportunities for services related to future air travel.  

The survey is designed to determine air passenger use, both pre-pandemic and anticipated post-pandemic. The information will support the Port Authority's efforts in securing the right airline to serve the local market.  

John Moliterno, chief executive officer at the Port, requested that the Regional Chamber design and distribute the survey. “This will ensure the community has a voice in determining the best air passenger service provider for the region. We want to accommodate our business leaders, leisure passengers and future growth opportunities in the Valley by supplying daily air passenger flights to destinations most in-demand. We are grateful to the Chamber for partnering in this promising effort,” he said. 

"Air service continues to be a need for local companies, as well as for the businesses we attract to the market,” added Sarah Boyarko, chief operating officer and senior vice president of Economic Development at the Regional Chamber. “Engaging the business community in this process is important to the Port Authority's efforts. We're always glad to support these opportunities." 

The survey will be open until Friday, June 11th, and may be found at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/YNGAIR
