"What are the details of the runway extension?"
The current runway length is not long enough to adequately serve modern passenger aircraft. Extending the runway by 1,035 feet (from 5,600 to 6,635) will allow common aircraft types to serve any of the routes to meet passenger demand. Most importantly, the extension will continue to improve safety on the take-off and landing of flights. In short, the runway extension will allow for additional destinations , increase airline accessibility, increase passenger traffic, stimulate the local economy, and create a financially sustainable airport.
