Funds OKd to lure airline

Okaloosa County Commissioners have unanimously backed a plan to spend $3 million over the next three years to bring a new airline to the Destin-Fort Walton Beach Airport in Northwest Florida. The money will come from the county bed tax reserves. Airport officials have shared no details about the airline being courted, citing concerns over confidentiality. What is known is the airline would bring new areas of service to the airport. (Source: Northwest Florida Daily News, 11/04/15)
