Lebanon Municipal Airport (KLEB) to receive Federal Aviation Administration funding

LEBANON, N.H. —The Lebanon Municipal Airport hit a milestone, recently.

It surpassed the 2014 goal of 10,000 enplanements on Dec. 8.

In achieving this objective, in partnership with Cape Air, the airport will receive the Federal Aviation Administration’s $1 million funding to cover eligible airport improvements.

The FAA entitlements are entirely user-funded with no cost to taxpayers.

For us in New Hampshire, Lebanon allows another option for air travel and getting this money will further improve this little airport in the Upper Valley.

Cape Air provides service to this airport and it allows you to connect with flights in other areas, like Albany, New York and Boston.

“The Lebanon Airport greatly appreciates Cape Air’s maximum effort providing airline service to the city and the region,” said Rick Dyment, airport manager.

“The very successful White Plains to Midtown service is one example, and the 74 domestic nonstop connections and 42 International nonstop connections through Boston are another.”

Cape Air has worked in tandem with the Lebanon Airport to exceed the 10,000 enplanements goal for the past three years, while delivering increased airport awareness and investment in the city of Lebanon through sponsorships and community engagement.

“Cape Air is thrilled to be a part of the successful efforts to reach 10,000 enplanements for 2014,” said Linda Markham, president of Cape Air/Nantucket Airlines. “We celebrate our achievement with our partners at the Lebanon City Council, Lebanon Airport, and the citizens of Lebanon. We look forward to building upon this success in 2015 and beyond.”

Cape Air offers daily flights from the Lebanon Airport to Boston Logan International Airport and partners with JetBlue, which allows passengers easy through ticketing and baggage transfers from the Lebanon Airport to most JetBlue cities.

Cape Air also has daily flights from Lebanon to Westchester County Airport, with included ground transportation to Midtown NYC.
