Rockford to Las Vegas Charter Service

The odds of Rockford to Las Vegas airplane charters are looking better.

The Greater Rockford Airport Authority polled leisure travelers last week. Executive Director Bob O'Brien says the results are very impressive and exceeded his expectations. The Airport Authority sent out an e-mail last Thursday morning to about 22 hundred individuals in the Rockford region. By the next day, they heard back from about 600 of those polled.

The proposed charter service would consist of non-stop trips from Rockford to Las Vegas Thursday through Sunday or Sunday through Thursday from mid-February through April of 2003.
