Great news! A major airline is interested in providing nonstop air service between
Modesto and Los Angeles (LAX). To prove to the airline that the community will use the new service
once it becomes available, the City has launched DestinationLAX, a campaign to gather $1 million
in nonbinding pledges. These pledges will be used to show the airline that there is an audience
for the route, and to commit the community to using the route once it becomes available. There
are no prepaid funds, escrow accounts or hard cash required. Simply pledge what you think you
or your company would spend flying to or through LA in one year, and tell your friends and
colleagues about the campaign. We need the support of the entire community if we’re to
reach our goal.
The campaign ends March 31, 2014, so there isn’t much time. Pledge today,
and help make nonstop service to LA a reality.
