A new Lehigh Valley International Airport survey is seeking input from the regional business community to do so that could result in new or increased nonstop destination service.

The Lehigh Valley International Airport (LVIA) is focused on increasing its number of nonstop destinations, and is seeking input from the regional business community to do so.

The airport is currently circulating a brief online survey seeking information from Lehigh Valley companies about travel habits and which destinations are most important to them.

The survey can be found here and takes only a few minutes to complete. It could result in adding or increasing nonstop services to such cities as Boston and Pittsburgh, to name a couple, according to the airport.

“The airport encourages readers to forward the survey link to other businesses who may benefit from increased air service,” said Darren Betters, Director of Business Development for the Lehigh-Northampton Airport Authority. “The more information we collect, the more it will help when we are discussing new opportunities with airlines.”

LVIA, which plays a crucial role in regional economic development, currently offers 11 nonstop destinations, including Atlanta (ATL), Charlotte (CLT), Chicago (ORD), Detroit (DTW), Fort Lauderdale (FLL), Fort Myers Area (PGD), Myrtle Beach (MYR), Newark (EWR), Orlando Area (SFB), Philadelphia (PHL), and Tampa Area (PIE).
