What makes an airport "Minnesota nice"? We want your input

We're looking for your input on what makes an airport a welcome place to visit. Take our survey on airport hospitality and tell us what features, amenities, and services are important to you. We'll communicate the results with airport managers and use it as we encourage them to find ways to meet the needs of the pilots and passengers who use their airports. The survey should take less than 10 minutes. Please feel free to forward it to your pilot friends and ask them to provide their input as well.
