The Swift Current Airport has a new name.

Swift Current City Council has decided to change the name of the airport from The Swift Current Airport to the Swift Current Regional Airport.

Although there were suggestions to change it to Grasslands National Airport, many thought the name would confuse travelers.

A feasibility plan on the airport was recently complete through the leadership of Southwest REDA.

They are currently working on a business plan.

Swift Current City Council is going to be working with the Airport Initiative led by Southwest REDA to put some signs along the highway to promote the airport.
