Big Changes at Ottumwa Airport

OTTUMWA, Iowa (AP) -- Ottumwa officials are making plans that could help turn the city airport into a regional cargo hub.
   The Ottumwa Courier says ( ) plans are in place to lengthen the 5,900-foot main runway to between 7,200 and 7,300 feet.
   City Administrator Joe Helfenberger says the city also wants the airport to have a satellite customs office and a duty-free designation.
   A customs office in Ottumwa would let companies fly items directly to Ottumwa from outside the country, saving them a stop on the way. The duty-free designation could grant exemptions from state and federal taxes for items that move through the airport. That, too, could lure attract companies that ship items internationally.
