NWA Council touts Fare Flight NWA


To battle high airfares at the Northwest Arkansas Regional Airport, the Northwest Arkansas Council has rolled out a new program.

The new Fare Flight NWA program focuses on the benefits of using XWA, arming travelers with the best information about the airport before they make travel decisions.

It also educates people about how XNA is a direct benefit to the region and how flying there contributes to the local economy. 

Rob Smith with the Northwest Arkansas Council said his team is most proud of the cost calculator.

“A lot of times when you go through there and you do the math and get beyond just the cost of the flight,” said Rob Smith with the Northwest Arkansas Council. “You look at the travel cost the toll road to Oklahoma, those sorts of things. XNA comes out a winner in more instances than people realize.”

Smith said XNA has already seen great growth this year, increasing it’s number of passengers by 12 percent.
