Toledo, OH., January 15, 2008 . . . The Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority reports that passenger activity, during
2007 at Toledo Express Airport, was down -12% on a capacity reduction of -20%. While Toledo Express has seen a
decrease in capacity, these numbers reflect a national average as airlines are continuing to restructure and right
size operating fleets to help their balance sheets.
“As we reflect on 2007, we are happy to report that progress has been made starting with four months of steady
passenger increase in both the 3rd and 4th quarter. In addition, we have been able to successfully implement three
new programs including: the Fly Local – Buy Local economic development campaign, a new full-service travel
booking engine www.flytoledoexpress.com, and a new Express Travel Rewards program. All of these programs will
help us better position the airport within our community in 2008, although much work is yet to be done,” stated Eric
J. Frankl, Airports Director for the Toledo-Lucas County Port Authority.

Also, here's an editorial from the Toledo Business Journal... "Use It or Lose It"


The region received an important warning message in mid-January.
Toledo Express Airport released figures for passenger traffic at the
airport during calendar year 2007. The airport suffered a decline of
12.2% compared to activity the previous year in 2006.
During 2007, airlines with scheduled flights serving Toledo Express
eliminated service resulting in a 20% reduction of seats coming in
and out of the airport. There is good news to report as Continental
Connection is looking at shifting larger aircraft into this market that
will result in additional seats being added by this carrier during the
first quarter of 2008.
