Dawn on the new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport
“I do believe the new Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport will change our economy and have a major impact on Northwest Florida in the near future and more dramatic impact down the road. We are already seeing the signs by all fares being considerably lower in airports throughout the region with the announcement of Southwest Airlines.”
Dawn on Upcoming Changes to Our Area
“Panama City Beach and all of Northwest Florida will have a global change and we will all start experiencing a much different kind of landscape. More international travelers will be prevalent and more infrastructure improvements in place to support the destination will be on the near horizon.”
Dawn on Our Region
Short term we will all need patience and a collaborative attitude. Our new vacationers and business opportunities won’t care about county lines or fragmented markets. We will need to make it easier for them to move around the region and enjoy all its vast assets.
