“Wichita is growing with new business, educational opportunities and families choosing
to make Kansas their home,” said Sen. Jerry Moran. “Over the past several years
I have hosted numerous business leaders and federal officials in Wichita to meet with
local leaders and witness our aerospace, aviation and defense manufacturing
capabilities. As companies in Wichita continue to secure federal work, I have seen a
vital need of connecting
“The Air Capital of the World” with the nation’s capital.
The direct American Airlines flight will allow federal officials to quickly travel to Wichita to see
firsthand the great work being done in our region – amplifying our competitiveness as a
city and state. This has long been a void I have heard from industry and business
owners, and I am thrilled our hard work to fill this void is accomplished. It will also make
travel to Washington, D.C. faster and more affordable for Kansans.”
