Scholes International Airport at Galveston (TX) Business Plan: 2013

R.A. Wiedemann & Associates, Inc. was selected to perform a business plan for Scholes International Airport at Galveston. This airport is located on Galveston Island in the southern end of the Houston metroplex. The airport serves six helicopter transportation services that transport workers to and from oil drilling and production platforms in the Gulf of Mexico. The airport has a large land area and has two major non-aviation tenants: Moody Gardens and Schlitterbahn Water Park. These two attractions draw more than 2 million visitors each year. In recent years, aviation activity has declined and the airport desires a plan that will increase revenues and take advantage of the large infrastructure available. Hurricane Ike physically damaged the airport and also damaged its brand. As such, the airport has already made changes to protect tenants against harsh storms. The business plan has identified a number of potential growth opportunities for the airport and a plan for implementing these changes has been developed.
