The city of Cincinnati is likely to close the Blue Ash Airport this summer because of its inability to win federal grants and declining revenue from landing fees and tenants.
Airport supporters, including the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, are trying to prevent the closure. But Airport Manager Fred Anderton said the outlook is bleak.
“I don’t know there’s much more that can be done,” he said.
Cincinnati bought the 228-acre airport in 1946 as a potential replacement for foggy and flood-prone Lunken Airport, before the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport was developed in Northern Kentucky.
