Spirit AeroSystems is the presenting sponsor for a series of events celebrating the new Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport terminal located at 2277 Eisenhower Airport Parkway. The community events include a Dedication Event on April 11, Community Open House on April 18 and a celebration marking the first day of operations in May (date to be announced).
“The increasing demand for air travel that is driving the need for the new airport also drives growth in our business,” said Spirit AeroSystems President and CEO Larry Lawson. “We’re proud to partner with the Wichita Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport to help celebrate this important milestone for growth in our hometown.”
Spirit designs and manufactures aerostructures -- such as fuselages and wing components -- for commercial aircraft. The company builds more than 70% of every Boeing 737, the bestselling jetliner in aviation history and a common sight on the Wichita Eisenhower National Airport runway.
Additional sponsors include: Crossland Construction Company, Inc., Key Construction/Walbridge, HNTB, AECOM, Civil Technology, Inc., Automatic Systems, Inc. and Building Controls among others.
