Boise Airport does not receive $1 million grant to increase Sun Valley service
The Boise Airport was hoping a $1 million grant would allow them to offer service to Sun Valley, but it looks like that won't be happening any time soon. According to the Idaho Business Review, the airport did not receive the grant they had applied for from the U.S. Transportation Department.
“We will continue to pursue that service,” airport director Rebecca Hupp told IBR. The grant would have hopefully helped attract new airlines and was backed by the Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce. The organization said they would have been willing to match some of the grant funds as well.
Hupp did tell IBR that they received a $6.8 million grant from the Department of Transportation last month to improve one of their runways.
