A Look Inside Cherry Capital Airport's Record Growth

By Beth Milligan | Feb. 7, 2019

More than 500,000 passengers passed through the Cherry Capital Airport in 2018, a record year for an airport that seemingly has few limits on future growth. The February issue of the Traverse City Business News - sister publication of The Ticker - explores some of the factors contributing to the airport's growth, including new routes and more flights, a growing regional population, a strong economy, and runway improvements that allow for larger planes to serve the airport.

This month's TCBN also includes an inside look at barrel aging and how it's reshaping the craft beer scene, Traverse City Tourism's efforts to attract more business groups and convention dollars to the region, an overview on what Michigan's new recreational laws mean for employers, and much more. The TCBN is available for annual subscription for just $35 here, or is available for sale at more than 30 area bookstores and retailers. Some (but not all) articles are also online for viewing here.
