Michael Giardino, the new Executive Director of Newport News- Williamsburg International Airport, spoke to the club on May 22. The Airport lost 60% of its traffic when AirTran was acquired by Southwest and Giardino's primary goal is to bring that lost service and revenue back by targeting major carriers to expand or initiate service.
