GlobalAir.com has moved into new offices beneath the Bowman Field (LOU) control tower in Louisville, Ky.
Founder and President Jeff Carrithers says he wants the transition to spark more growth at the airport. The new offices will allow GlobalAir.com to expand, Carrithers said, spurring economic development in the Louisville area, a community where airports and aviation-related businesses in recent years have created thousands of jobs.
Once a large data center for the FAA, the new Bowman Business Center provides GlobalAir.com with greater network capabilities. Additionally, the increased office space creates opportunity to expand roles and jobs as the website adds future services, he said, adding, “we will occupy 2,300 square feet at this point but will have the availability of approximately 7,000 square feet.”
Louisville’s two airports, Bowman Field (LOU) and Louisville International (SDF), comprise the largest employment center in the city. A 2009 study sponsored by the Louisville Regional Airport Authority showed that the facilities helped create more than 55,600 jobs, leading to nearly $2 billion in payroll and more than $5.6 billion in area spending.
