CVG is looking to expand services

BOONE COUNTY, KY (FOX19) - The Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) is looking to expand its services to offset cutbacks that are causing growing concern for Tri-State businesses.

CVG is trying to attract low-cost air carriers and persuade existing ones to expand their services. Rising fuel prices have caused airlines to have to raise their prices.

In 2005, CVG offered 600 flights daily but now that number has dropped to 170 flights. This drop is mostly due to major cut backs by Delta Airlines.

Airport officials hope the planned reopening of a concourse will help expand their services.
