The Routes America 2020 conference coming to Indianapolis on Feb. 3-5 of next year could have a huge impact on air travel to and from the city, even though the event itself is only expected to draw about 800 attendees.
The airport will sell 132 acres to the city of Indianapolis in phases over the next several years. In turn, the city will sell the property to Infosys for pennies so it can create a $245 million training campus.
Indianapolis International Airport has been on a roll in recent years, seeing strong increases in passenger traffic and direct flights. But now jet-fuel prices are on the way up, threatening to slow the airport's progress.
