New flights could bring money to community


SAVOY, Ill. (WCIA) — Willard Airport could be getting a new flight, and Champaign City Council wants to hear about it.

Representatives from the airport will give the council a general update on the airport Tuesday night. They will also talk about the economic impact of adding another line. Officials estimate another $8.5 million if new flights to Washington, D.C. were added.
