Flights of Wine/Flights of Coffee For A Better KCI



“This will be our airport.” That’s the rationale behind a group of young professionals who’ve come together to promote the need for a new single terminal at KCI Airport. They’re the ones, after all, who will be using the airport for the next several decades.
 
The Better KCI Ambassadors group is made up of millennials from the KC Chamber’s Centurions and genKC YP groups, the Northland Chamber, VisitKC, and other organizations. They’ve been organizing ‘Flights of” events featuring networking and a discussion about the need for “A Better KCI.”
