Loudoun County Supervisor and COG President Matt Letourneau, MWAA CEO Jack Potter, BWI CEO Paul Wiedefeld featured in News Channel 8 story.

WTOP, DCist also covered the regional airports presentation.

As part of the COG Board infrastructure focus in 2014, Jack Potter, CEO of the Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority (MWAA) which oversees Dulles and Reagan National airports, and Paul Wiedefeld, CEO of BWI-Marshall Airport, briefed officials on air travel trends and how the region can prepare for future air travel expansion.

Area leaders at COG have had a long-standing policy to seek balance in the regional three airport system. Recent COG data shows shifting air traffic—more growth at National and BWI and less growth at Dulles.
