Air travel in Oregon has gotten more efficient — and crowded — with leaner operations despite more passengers. PDX commercial flights fell about 13% over the past decade while accommodating a 17% boost in passengers. Part of the reason may be an 84% decrease in charter flights and an 86% drop in their passengers, who have likely shifted to airlines. Meanwhile, PDX’s international passengers surged almost 60%. Slimmer operations are also evident at Oregon’s biggest regional airport in Eugene, where they fell 36% for November year-to-date while passengers increased 39%. Medford and Redmond, especially, have also enjoyed higher passenger volumes.

A fourth Portland location is slated for the inner southeast “LOCA” development, a mixed-use project featuring condos and retail. Revenues in 2014 were $175 million, a double-digit increase over 2013. CEO Rick Wright discusses growth, market trends and how he keeps new “foodie” grocery clerks happy.

Oregon's roads are crumbling, and revenues from state and local gas taxes are not sufficient to pay for improvements.

Reader comments:

"I feel private enterprises are capable of operating at a higher efficiency than state government."

"This has been used in Oregon since the mid-1800s. It is not a new financing method. This form of financing may help Oregon close its infrastructure deficit by leveraging funds."
