Airline Programs

Albuquerque International Sunport’s  business goals include growing passenger service by providing incentives to increase airline service and competition, and lowering barriers to commencing and marketing passenger service at ABQ. Consistent with these goals, the Sunport will initiate programs to:

  • Encourage new entrant and incumbent airlines to offer new, nonstop, scheduled passenger air service through an Airline Competition Incentive Program (ACIP)
  • Encourage marketing of new, nonstop, scheduled passenger air service through an Airline Cooperative Marketing Program (ACMP).

The ACIP and ACMP are intended for use either separately or jointly, depending on the circumstances . As a result of increased and better-marketed passenger air service at the Sunport, travelers will gain access to a more extensive travel network, stimulating further economic development for the Sunport.
