Krauter Gets More Power at Port


Finotti, John, The Florida Times Union


Jacksonville Port Authority members gave broader powers to their

president and chief executive officer last week.

The JPA approved three resolutions that give greater authority

to Ken Krauter and his senior management team.

Seen by many as a significant development for the port

authority, the action gives Krauter a freer reign to pursue his

"agenda for change," which is billed as bringing a business-like

approach to the operation of the city's airports and deep-water

commitment to be an airline of substance, style and

international reach -- in short, the carrier of choice," said US

Airways Chairman and CEO Stephen Wolf.

Jacksonville International Airport posted a record 149,853

passengers in the month of January, topping the previous record

of 135,390 in January 1995.

Airport officials say the introduction of 14 daily flights by

low-fare carrier Southwest on Jan. 15 was a primary factor.

Other major airlines such as Delta and US Airways also posted

better-than-expected gains in passengers, said Bill Petite,

aviation properties manager.

"Southwest stimulated the market," Petite said. "They made the

pie bigger."

JPA board members approved the purchase of 159 acres of land
