Three members of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) board have resigned.
Jim Huff, chairman of the Kenton County Airport Board, Larry Savage, vice chairman of the board, and airport board member Mark Arnzen submitted letters of resignation Friday to Kenton County Judge-Executive Steve Arlinghaus, effective immediately.
Bill Robinson, Kathy Collins and Chad Summe will replace each of them respectively.
Airport officials say they're seeing signs that things are moving in the right direction. CVG reports the number of passengers was up about 3 percent and its cargo traffic grew about 9 percent, comparing 2013 to 2012.
Here's the statement from CVG:
Local origin and destination (O&D) passengers using Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) yielded an increase for nine out of twelve months during 2013.
In its heyday the Cincinnati Northern Kentucky International Airport saw Delta offer 670 daily flights with direct service to Amsterdam, Frankfurt, London, Rome and Paris. But that was 2005 and this is now.
Today passenger flights total 178 a day with one international flight to Paris.
