Helena Air Service Survey to track interest in low-cost carrier. Helena Regional Airport (KHLN) and Montana Business Assistance Connection

The Helena Regional Airport and Montana Business Assistance Connection, or MBAC, is asking for everyone to take the Helena Air Service Survey.

The survey looks to gauge interest in bringing a new flight opportunity to the Helena Airport. The flight would be from Helena to Billings.

Airport director Ron Mercer says there is great opportunity to bring in the low-cost carrier with the amount of corporate and personal flights in and out of the city. Mercer says Gulfstream currently flies into Billings and he's hoping both Missoula and Helena get on board.

"So, you know if we can show that there's enough interest in the community, then people might fly that.  We're hoping that Gulfstream would take a hard look at putting service into Helena,” says Mercer.

Mercer and members of MBAC highly encourage corporate executives and state agencies to take the survey within the next two weeks.
