Willow Run Airport facing 'financial disaster'
In the article, Thomas Naughton, chief financial officer of the Wayne County Airport Authority, said Willow Run "continues to be a financial disaster."
Traffic at the airport is down significantly, the article says, because of automakers' financial woes and a drop in business from general aviation and charter operators. The volume of cargo handled at the airport is down more than 50 percent compared to last year, which was far below the level of the year before, the article says.
"We're looking at everything, including privatizing, leasing the facility out, coming up with alternative uses," Willow Run spokesman Scott Wintner told The News.
