Cincinnati/Dayton/Northern Kentucky Region Designated as a Manufacturing Community
The Cincinnati, Dayton and Northern Kentucky region was recently named among 12 initial communities included in the Manufacturing Communities Partnership Program, a federal initiative created by the U.S. Department of Commerce to boost manufacturing and long-term economic development. This designation will greatly enhance the region’s competitiveness in the aerospace manufacturing industry.

The "Southwestern Ohio Aerospace Region" designation includes the Interstate 75 corridor between Dayton and Northern Kentucky and was won through a coordinated effort by REDI Cincinnati, Dayton Development Coalition, Northern Kentucky Tri-ED, the City of Dayton and other community partners.

Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport looks to improve passenger experience
CVG Airport will soon be able to improve the passenger experience through a new airport passenger management technology system, which monitors travelers' Wi-Fi devices to identify congested areas to help reduce wait times. CVG will be the first U.S. airport to implement the technology, which was created by Lockheed Martin. It's already in use at 20 airports around the world, including in Amsterdam, Dubai, Geneva, Oslo and Toronto.

"The BlipTrack technology benefits both passengers and the airport team as it allows them to see, in real time, where potential queues and pressure points are and provide proactive planning of the situation to improve service," said Martin Bowman, director of Global Airports for Lockheed Martin. “Knowing where there is congestion allows passengers to avoid lines – so they can spend more time shopping or relaxing in the airport. This is all about improved collaboration between the airport, airlines and TSA for the enhancement of the passenger experience."

CVG will also have new discounted air service through Frontier Airlines. The low-cost carrier will be offering new flights to Washington D.C. starting in September. This will be the third announced expansion for Frontier at CVG since it launched in May 2013.
