Feb 11 2008 Questions About Leakage BY sgf-admin TAGS

 

John has several questions about the leakage posting:

 

"12% leakage sounds really good. But, just a retired truck driver being curious...how did you guys figure out that is was 12%. Did you survey residents? I also noticed that the report said that 13% of the 8 million people that visit Branson fly, but only 10% of those fly through Springfield? That number seems low...how did you figure that. Do you think that if the airport raises that number...say to 50% will you be able bring more low fare airlines and lower existing prices for us locals?"

Jake inquires, "Is the building of the new airport going to raise airport fees for the airlines? If so, this certainly isn't going to make SGF more competitive to lower rates to draw travelers to SGF from TUL, MCI, STL. Any comments on this is appreciated."
