Conventions and major sporting events bring hundreds of private jets to Indianapolis each year, and Greenwood wants more of those planes landing at the city airport.
The Greenwood Municipal Airport is the closest suburban airport to downtown Indianapolis. Passengers don’t have to walk through a busy airport terminal or deal with the traffic that surrounds the airport in Indianapolis. And hotels in Greenwood are less expensive than downtown.
For those reasons, Greenwood could become more of a destination for small jet traffic, if pilots and companies know the airport exists, Greenwood economic development commission president Steve Spencer said.
