The Air Service Committee focuses on issues related to the development, maintenance and retention of air carrier air services to member airports. Members of the committee work to develop events for airport members to connect with air carrier representatives, enabling them to build productive relationships between the carriers and the communities they serve. The committee develops and advocates on regulatory and legislative issues related to air service and interacts, at a minimum, with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the U.S. Department of Transportation as well as Transport Canada (TC).

The Air Service Committee has the following working groups:

  • Air Service Small Airport Challenges
  • Air Service Policy
  • Air Service Resources
  • Air Service Conference Planning (Open to Steering Group members only)
