LANCASTER, Penn. / June 27, 2023 / AVIATION NEWS— Lancaster Airport (KLNS) is pleased to announce the completion of Phase III of its four-phase runway improvement project, an event marked by the reopening of runway 8-26, taxiway Delta east of runway 13-31, and both taxiways Juliet and November east of taxiway Foxtrot on Saturday, July 1.
The project, which began in 2021, upgrades and standardizes the runway and taxiway surfaces, and mitigates potentially hazardous storm-water ponding at mid-field.
“We’re grateful for the flying public’s patience while we continue to improve the runway facilities at Lancaster Airport,” Mary Forney, manager of the airport’s FBO, LNS Alliance Aviation, said. “The resurfacing and drainage improvements are necessary for safer, smoother landings, and safety is always our top priority.”
The conclusion of Phase III comes at an ideal time ahead of July Fourth for those flying in to enjoy the Lancaster area’s golf courses, unique shops, restaurants and Amish Country attractions. In honor of the reopening, Alliance Aviation will offer a Jet A fuel promotion of 4 AVTRIP Points per gallon on uplifts or 10 points per gallon for top offs July 1-31.
“We look forward to welcoming both established customers and new faces alike to Lancaster, and helping them make the most of their time in the area,” Forney said.
In addition to the runway upgrade, Alliance Aviation’s new, 6,700-square-foot facility offers exceptional amenities, including large pilot and passenger lounges, a flight planning area, and concierge customer service for car rentals, hotel and catering arrangements. The on-site restaurant adjacent to the FBO provides a full-service dining option, with patio seating offering ramp and runway views.
Aircraft accommodations include ramp tie-down, heated hangar rentals and full-service Jet A and 100LL fueling from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. Self-serve 100LL is available 24 hours on the east side of the terminal.
