An incentive program worth up to $4 million has been launched by Indianapolis Airport Authority (IAA) to attract a new transatlantic service.
The Passenger & Cargo Air Service Incentive Plan is available to any airline providing qualifying transatlantic service beginning or announced by the end of December 2022. It has a cap of $2 million per year and is funded for up to two years, while total support for any and all qualifying airlines will not exceed $4 million.
“We are more committed than ever to increasing nonstop passenger and cargo destinations and resuming nonstop transatlantic service,” said Mario Rodriguez, executive director of IAA.
The new incentive scheme includes a mix of fee waivers and marketing support to aid in the attraction of new international flights, new domestic flights, new airlines to IND, and new international cargo flights. IAA said simultaneous multi-city expansion benefits are available, and incentives will be provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
