On October 30, 2012, travel company Surf Patch commented on the benefits of the recent article by Jennifer DeWitt of Business Journal,regarding Quad-City's Airport expansion, which allows travelers to fly clear of winter delays mainly due to grounded snow.

According to the Business Journal article, “Two facilities at the Quad-City International Airport will receive facelifts as the airport moves forward with a new U.S. Customs facility and an equipment storage building expansion.” The article states that the project is mainly geared towards snow removal, as they doubled the snow removal equipment in order to fly clear of winter delays caused by snow on the ground.

According to Brian Johnson, Quad-City Airport's Aviation Director, “We're trying to get the steel up before winter so they can work all winter long inside.” Johnson also stated in the article, that the first part of the $2.8 million process will involve creating a new general aviation center for corporate and private passengers to go through U.S. Customs and Board Patrol.

Travel company Surf Patch commented on the benefits of increasing snow removal equipment in a city like Chicago. World Traveler Takara Licausi knows how important it is to fly clear of delays due to snow. “In my travels I have experienced many delays and cancellations due to snow on the ground. In doubling their snow removal equipment, Quad-City Airport will hopefully decrease or eliminate those problems for their passengers,” says Licausi.
