Southwest Georgia Regional Airport unveils new building plans

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Officials at Southwest Georgia Regional Airport unveil new building plans to attract more economic development.

Commissioners approved the concept of plans to demolish the Fix Base Operator hangars and build new buildings on both sides of the airport to attract Executive customers who fly in on private jets. They said the plans will hopefully bring more businesses and economic development to Albany.

"We are the red carpet. We are the welcome for people that come in on a commercial aircraft, but for the folks that come in and are looking at possibly opening a business, coming into hunt, those folks come in on private airplanes and we need to give them the same look at Albany that we have here in the new building,” said Yvette Aehle.

Airport officials will meet with consultants to discuss cost. They say it could be a five year project.
