If you’ve been to a big airport like MSP, you know how stressful they can be – exorbitant parking costs, long security lines, crowded terminals and delayed flights. Sometimes the stress of navigating through an airport (or even thinking about it!) can make you feel like taking a vacation isn’t worth it.
The good news is that air service in St. Cloud will reduce the stress of flying, and instead, pave the way for a restful and relaxing vacation. We’ve talked a lot about how air service in St. Cloud will benefit businesses in our region, but I want to take a minute to tell you about some of the ways leisure travelers will benefit from air service as well.
5 reasons leisure travelers will love air service to St. Cloud
The other day, I had the chance to talk with Julia and Greg Hayenga, owners of Personal Touch Travel, a full-service travel agency in St. Cloud. The Hayengas said 70 percent of their customers are leisure travelers, many of whom have expressed interest in air service from St. Cloud.
Greg said one of the main reasons leisure travelers want to see air service in St. Cloud is because of the stress and hassle of flying out of MSP.
“A number of our clients have told us they are concerned about missing flights from MSP because of hectic Twin Cities traffic and long check-in and security lines,” said Greg. “Not having air service in St. Cloud also affects a number of our agency’s elderly clients who don’t drive or do not want to drive to MSP.”
I asked the two to sum up why leisure travelers will love air service in St. Cloud. Below are their top five reasons.
1. It’s convenient.
2. You can avoid the time and hassle of driving in Twin Cities traffic.
3. Chicago is a great option for connections to European cities, as well as attractive winter locations.
4. With TSA security equipment, STC will be prepared to reinstate affordable charter service to leisure destinations.
5. Free parking.
