WATERVILLE — The Robert LaFleur Municipal Airport is poised to handle more jet traffic and service aircraft better after millions of dollars’ worth of work over the last two years, city officials say.
Those investments at the city-owned airport include a newly reconstructed main runway, new equipment, a renovated terminal, a self-serve fueling system, aircraft maintenance and flight school businesses on site and plans for further marketing.
“Over the last two years we’ve made investments because of a lack of equipment, and the facilities needed to be upgraded,” airport Manager Randy Marshall said. “The airport didn’t have the welcome mat out. Now we’re at a pivotal time in the airport’s history where we’ve made a lot of smart investments to position the airport to attract businesses to our community and provide the services they’re going to need to support their growth and the growth of the city.”
