Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri – February 16, 2017 – The Waynesville-St. Robert Regional Airport has a brand new, user-friendly website aimed at attracting new customers and increasing enplanements at the airport in 2017. The website address is: www.flyflw.com.
The website went live in January of 2017. It features information about the airport, as well as driving directions to the airport, a blog that will be used regularly to inform passengers about the airport and the region, the ability to contact the airport, a link to book tickets for upcoming flights, real time arrivals and departures information, and a cost calculator that helps potential passengers determine the total cost of their trip from the WSRA versus other airport options.
“We know that the passengers who use the airport are happy with the service, and we hope the website provides even more people with the information they need to choose the airport and Cape Air,” said Cape Air station manager Carola Prewett.
Cape Air has been providing commercial airline service for the general public at the WSRA for six years. The airline offers four to five round-trip flights to St. Louis every day. Each Cape Air plane seats eight people and Cape Air provides checked baggage service for all passengers. Baggage is flown on a separate plane, but automatically checked for the passenger when it arrives in St. Louis (except for Southwest passengers) to ensure all passengers receive their baggage at their final destination.
Though the airport is located on Fort Leonard Wood, it is open to the general public. Gaining access to the installation is possible for non-military passengers. Fort Leonard Wood provides the necessary information about installation access on their website.
Potential passengers from Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, and Washington should also be aware of the Real ID Act, which does not allow drivers’ licenses and identification cards from these states as valid forms of identification.
“Typically, our passengers who are prepared haven’t had any trouble getting to the airport or gaining access to the installation. We have a great relationship with the installation security officials and military police, who work very hard to keep Fort Leonard Wood safe. They are very helpful when our passengers are trying to get to the airport and when they arrive,” said Prewett.
In addition to the airport’s new website, local citizens and passengers can connect with the airport on social media. The airport has active Facebook (@flyflw), Twitter (@WSRAirport), and Instagram (@flyflw) accounts.
Throughout the year, the airport would like to know about your experience with the airport and Cape Air. You can contact the airport at any time by sending them an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org or using the Contact Us form on the website.
