Ted Kitchens, director of the Manchester-Boston Regional Airport, will answer questions about recent airfield developments plus effects of the global aviation industry in a free talk, open to the public, on Thursday, May 9.

The session comes as the airport has seen two new airlines arrive – Breeze Airways will start twice-weekly flights to Florida and South Carolina this summer, and Sun Country Airlines will start service to Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport in August – but also saw Spirit Airlines’ decision to suspend flights here indefinitely. The airport has been struggling for a decade against industry trends and competition from Logan Airport in Boston which has cut total service and dropped total passenger count by more than half from its peak in 2005.

The presentation will start at 7 p.m. at the Aviation Museum of New Hampshire, 27 Navigator Road, Londonderry.
