AVP Cargo Feasibility Study

The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport (AVP) is undertaking an Air Cargo Feasibility Study Update for the airport with the objective of informing strategic development. Their effort entails extensive quantitative and geographic research, in addition to multiple outreach approaches to garner feedback directly from the cargo industry and its customers.

They will be hosting two virtual workshops on the topic:

  • Friday, October 29, 2021 at 1 PM EST – A one-hour workshop, with 30 minutes being a regional air cargo overview, followed by a 30-minute group discussion of regional cargo challenges and opportunities with representatives of the invited air carriers, handlers, forwarders, trucking companies, and shippers.
  • November 4, 2021 at 10 AM EST  – A 30-minute briefing session to outline the study and our efforts. This session, which will be less technical in nature, is intended to provide local government representatives and transportation agencies with information on the cargo study.
