Sen. V. Susan Sosnowski has announced that, after meeting with representatives of the Rhode Island Airport Corporation, they have agreed to provide aviation services at the Block Island Airport on April 1, 2019 from the same vendor currently providing such services at Rhode Island’s four other general aviation airports.

According to a press release issued by the State House, “In July 2018, RIAC awarded a bid for aviation support services to FlightLevel Rhode Island, LLC. At that time, FlightLevel had submitted a bid to provide aviation support services to North Central, Westerly, Newport and Quonset State Airport, but their proposal did not include Block Island.”

“’After meeting with representatives of RIAC, I’m pleased to report that they have agreed that FlightLevel will begin providing aviation support services at Block Island Airport,’ said Senator Sosnowski. ‘Many of my constituents made this a priority and I appreciate that RIAC was responsive to this request.’”

Sosnowski is a Democrat representing Dist. 37, which includes New Shoreham, South Kingstown.
