Airport sets $60 million budget

Spokane International Airport directors today unanimously voted to pass a $60.3 million 2011 budget along to Spokane County and the City of Spokane for approval.

The budget, split $28 million for operations and $32.3 million for capital expenditures, is five percent higher than the 2010 budget, but does not call for any fee increases to either the airlines or the public, airport Finance Manager Dave Armstrong said.

Spokane International is among the few airports with boardings and revenues tracking ahead of 2009 levels, he said.

The city and county own the airport.
