ATLANTA (AP) - A new report says an effort is underway that would significantly expand operations at a small airport northwest of Atlanta.
A venture capital firm has partnered with Paulding Northwest Atlanta Airport officials on a plan to bring airline service to Paulding County and a cluster of aviation-related businesses.
It's the latest attempt to offer alternative airline service in Atlanta. Public opposition halted a similar effort in Gwinnett County last year.
Propeller Investments Chief Executive Brett Smith tells the newspaper he hopes to announce airline service by year's end after receiving federal approvals. Smith says the effort will be limited to start, hoping for one airline with a few flights a week.
The Paulding airport is located west of Dallas, about 38 miles from downtown Atlanta.
