Duluth to Denver? Airport seeks federal funding for direct route
Thursday, August 22, 2019
The airport recently applied for a U.S. Department of Transportation grant to help fund the route.
The Duluth International Airport (DLH) recently submitted its application to secure federal funding for a direct flight to Denver.
The U.S. Department of Transportation grant would fund around 70% of the project’s more than $1.1 million price tag, with the local businesses and entities supporting the remaining costs. Establishing this route would decrease air fares, as well as give Duluth residents and businesses easier access to western cities, according to the grant application.
