The Evansville Regional Airport (EVV) unveiled a new program on Tuesday, along with the first nine local companies to join the program.

Officials with the airport unveiled the new "FlyEVV First" program, which they say is designed to maximize the impact that flying local has on the region.

According to the announcement made by the airport, the first nine companies to join the FlyEVV First program are AstraZeneca, Atlas, Berry Global, CenterPoint Energy, Energy Systems Group (ESG), Gibbs, Koch Enterprises, Old National, and Toyota.

“FlyEVV First provides the opportunity for regional business leaders to continually help move our region forward by committing their companies to utilize Evansville Regional Airport,” said Nate Hahn, Executive Director at Evansville Regional Airport. “Flying EVV First benefits the entire region by improving our region’s global competitiveness, reducing overall business travel costs and growing our region’s economy.”

Hahn says that by joining the program, companies are demonstrating demand, which in turn, encourages airlines to lower fairs and add more flights and destinations to the EVV route map.

“There is a direct correlation between increased usage at EVV and the potential for new routes,” said Hahn. “Airlines monitor passenger volume as they determine air service expansion plans, so the best way to continually grow our airport, is to choose EVV when traveling.”

Wednesday morning marked our coldest start to a day in nearly 3 weeks - morning low temperatures dove into the single digits for much of the Tri-State and our northerly winds routinely drove wind chill values well below zero throughout the Lower Ohio Valley. If there was any silver lining, our clear skies did allow temperatures to climb back into the mid 20s later in the day; though Evansville’s peak temperature of 25° remained 17° below average for this time of the year. The clear skies are expected to linger throughout the evening and much of the night ahead and will allow temperatures to fall back down into the mid to low teens early Thursday morning. We will fall to 14° in Evansville around daybreak Thursday.
