Summer is at our doorstep, and the travel season is well under way. To make traveling more convenient for our passengers, the Greater Peoria Airport Authority added two additional flights to give you more options for fun. Starting in May, American Eagle has six daily flights to Chicago and Northwest Airlines three daily flights to Minneapolis. Both new flights are scheduled for midday departure so you have good connecting options and another flight to return home earlier in the day.

We also started Phase II of the parking lot renovation in April. Please plan for additional time when coming to the airport so you can find a free parking spot in our lot. With our low fares, non-stop to Las Vegas, and construction activities, our parking lot has been very full. Not to worry, our new shuttle will pick you up and take you to the terminal. Please note the new and expanded lot with shuttle bus shelters is scheduled to be completed by early July. The parking lot will have nearly 2,000 spaces when finished.

We've put together a few traveling tips when using air service this summer:

Whether you're traveling by car, air, or train, have a safe and wonderful summer. IBI
