NJ airport campaigning for more flights

New Jersey’s Atlantic City International Airport is launching a campaign to attract more airlines to make it a destination, USA Today reports.

The airport is spending $500,000 to extol the virtues of traveling to Atlantic City, according to the report.

The paper said the airport has suffered from a 21 percent decline in passenger traffic since Hurricane Sandy, and the facility is only served by one airline, Spirit.

United Airlines has announced it will begin serving the airport this spring, and officials hope the ad campaign will convince other carriers to follow them, the paper reported.
