The future is here—and only innovative and agile organizations will succeed in the highly competitive and dynamic air transportation industry.
The Eastern Iowa Airport has been an integral part of the state’s aviation system since the first commercial flight departed in 1947. The airport evolved through the years using fiscally sound management and forward-thinking leadership.
With those foundational pieces in place, we embarked on the airport’s first comprehensive strategic plan. The objectives outlined in the plan are the most critical for ensuring continued organizational success. In fact, the complete transformation of the Donald J. Canney Terminal showcases the entrepreneurial spirit of ICR Iowa to our many visitors and guests.
The strategic plan is the blueprint for us to achieve new heights and increase our regional economic impact in ICR Iowa with a shared purpose, core values, and goals. Airport staff, commissioners, tenants, and community partners—all who understand the value and importance of The Eastern Iowa Airport—participated in creating this plan.
We cannot move forward alone. Community engagement and active regional partnerships are essential to fully achieve our shared mission of growing jobs in the ICR. Air travel enhances our quality of life, supports our business community, and propels local and regional economies.
Our full potential can only be realized through continued partnerships, sustained community engagement, and utilization of an invaluable regional economic asset—your airport.
