Option of closing existing Griffin-Spalding County Airport removed from table

SHEILA A. MATHEWS :::

Griffin-Spalding County Airport Authority Chairman Dick Morrow has announced that the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has announced it will not approve the closure of the existing Griffin-Spalding County Airport.
Previously thought to be a potential option on the table along with bringing the existing airport into Georgia Department of Transportation and FAA compliance and the construction of a new airport, GDoT officials now say it cannot be done.
“It is not an option,” Morrow said at Monday evening’s Airport Authority meeting. “The FAA is not interested in closing airports.”
Editor’s note: The Grip will have a full article on this issue posted later this evening upon the conclusion of the Airport Authority meeting.
