The Director of MBS, James Cander, told them marketing is a major priority for 2024.

Two to three years from now, I would like to see all these ticket counters behind me full and flights somewhere close to where they were in 2019, where we had nine to 10 airplane flights in and out of here a day to several destinations, rather than the five to six we’re seeing now to two destinations.

Increasing travelers means having a strategy to increase destinations and carriers, too.

Attracting more Airlines to MBS International Airport

The airport will be working with consultants to help pitch them to more carriers.

Of course, more carriers would mean more destinations. Thankfully, they have plenty of parking to accommodate everyone.

Remembering the Grand Opening of AutoWorld in Flint, Michigan

A short-lived Six Flags theme park, AutoWorld was supposed to be a tourist destination in Flint. Sadly, after several starts and stops, AutoWorld was imploded in early 1997. The land is now owned by University of Michigan-Flint and is home to the William S White Building.
