WATERLOO, Iowa

City leaders in Waterloo have hired a consultant with the goal if improving service at the Waterloo Regional Airport.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports Tuesday that City Council members unanimously voted Monday to approve a one-year, $24,000 contract with Texas-based Trillion Aviation. The city hopes the company will attract more carriers to the airport and negotiate for more flights.

A $19,200 grant from the Iowa Department of Transportation will help pay for the contract and the city of Waterloo will use hotel-motel tax revenue to fund the rest.

Airport director Brad Hagen says the company can provide airline-specific data and can help negotiate incentive packages.
