“Flying Eisenhower is not only convenient, it’s affordable,” said Valerie Wise, Air Service and Business Development Manager. “Our fares are very competitive with those in the region. Plus, the convenience of flying from Wichita saves time and minimizes hassle. The substantial decrease in fares is attributed to the entrance of low-fare carriers in Wichita.”
