There is significant demand for sustaining current, and recruiting new, air service in southeast Minnesota.

Air service in our region enhances the quality of the customer experience, supports our business community, and propels local and regional economies to new heights.

So why Fly RST?

Our full potential can only be realized through continued partnership, sustained community engagement, and utilization of an invaluable regional economic asset – YOUR Airport!

Business commitment to use air service is paramount. Fly Local travel policies will promote growth of local air service.  There is great potential to reduce mileage costs and employee time lost on ground transportation by adopting a travel policy.  Businesses and organizations of all sizes can choose to support RST and adopt a policy to Fly Local!

A Fly Local Draft Policy is available here to be used by your business or organization.  Please feel free to customize the policy to fit your business needs.

For more information on Fly Local travel policies or to add your organization to our list of supporters please contact Airport Administration or via phone at (507) 282-2328.
