Guest speaker Iftikhar Ahmad , president and CEO of the RI Airport Corporation, reported that Green Airport is on track for recovery after a multi-year decline.
Green is the 64th most used airport in the US out of 503 passenger airports. 4.6 million people live within 65 miles of the Airport and one million jobs are located within 70 miles, so the potential of the airport as a part of the state’s  economic development is large.
Since the reduction in flights by Southwest Airlines several years ago, there was a 40% reduction in passenger use until recently when there has been a significant increase as  the airport has seen a jump in international flights, more competitive fares and an increase in non-stop flights. Overall Mr. Ahmad said the future prospects for the airport are bright.
Before coming to his current position in October of 2016, he had previous aviation executive experience at airports in Houston, New Orleans, Nashville and Dayton, Ohio. He was a Rotary Club member in Nashville and expressed interest in rejoining Rotary in RI.
