A Breath of International Air

An ongoing series of suggestions for civic improvement

"What Knoxville really needs is an international airport. I worked on several international tourism projects in Florida and spent time in Western Europe, and I don’t think we fully realize the economic impact this could have on businesses in our region. With the Great Smoky Mountains in our backyard, we could easily create an outreach campaign that would put us on the map and make Knoxville a destination place for international tourists."
