Idaho Falls Airport

(IDAHO FALLS, ID) – The airport control towers in Pocatello, Idaho Falls, and Hailey will remain open at least through June.  On Wednesday, members of Congress agreed to continue providing funds for nearly 150 small airports across the country. The FAA has no plans to reallocate funds after June, leaving the burden of financing the towers on local governments. Idaho Falls airport director Craig Davis says he’s committed to keeping the Idaho Falls tower open one way or the other.
