WHAT'S UP AT PANGBORN AIRPORT?
A lot, actually! Located in East Wenatchee, smack dab in the middle of Cascade Farmlands, Pangborn Memorial Airport (EAT) offers a variety of flights.
2014 was a record year for the number of passengers flying through Pangborn. 2014 also saw increased rental car and parking, showing Pangborn is used by residents from throughout the region and visitors, whether for business or pleasure, from all over the world! The internet has successfully connected people globally, but face it--nothing can replace shaking a person's hand as a deal is consummated or giving that special someone a hug as they get off the airplane.
MORE TO COME
In terms of service, Pangborn is entering year two of a three year, $30 million runway expansion project which should be completed by the fall of 2016. This project will allow more reliable year round service from Alaska Airlines and corporate jets while allowing more air service to and from new destinations.
