Cherry Capital Airport Director Honored With State Award

Traverse City’s Cherry Capital Airport Director Kevin Klein is Michigan’s airport manager of the year.

The award is from the Michigan Association of Airport Executives.

He’s been with Cherry Capital Airport since 2002 and became director in 2011.

Under his leadership the airport has grown, and is working on projects like a new runway and the new Costco on airport property.

Klein says this award is a reflection of everyone’s hard work.

“I was very humbled. It’s a great honor to be recognized by your peers in the industry, but it’s something that really reminds me that it’s about all the people here at Cherry Capital Airport that make it work.”

The runway they’re extending will re-open to flights in October and they’ll be putting finishing touches on it until March.
