Ensuring quality air service and competition is a major challenge facing many America’s cities as communities work to improve options for both business and leisure travel.  To address this issue, the Air Service Coalition for Expanding New Development (ASCEND) has been created to advocate for new resources for U.S. air service development.


Mission: The mission of the ASCEND Coalition is to help U.S. cities develop tools to enhance and expand air service opportunities for their communities.  ASCEND is a public-private partnership focused on supporting America’s communities by maintaining and growing reliable air service.  

Purpose: Non-profit dedicated to working with airports, cities and business organizations, we want to identify solutions to address lost seat capacity and declining air service options.
