“This is a fantastic achievement and I want to acknowledge our airfield maintenance, public safety and operations team who work around the clock to ensure our airport is safe and secure,” said Benjamin Leischner, A.A.E., executive director, Quad Cities International Airport. “It takes a tremendous effort that translates to a seamless experience for our passengers and other airport users.
