As fuel costs continue to climb, some airports may have to start fighting to stay in business. That is the claim of one advocacy group and it puts Lubbock on that list.
The study by the Business Travel Coalition, a customer advocacy group says airlines are paying twice as much for fuel than they did last year, and that could affect the profitability of operating some equipment.
NewsChannel 11 talked to Steve Nicholson, the deputy director of operations and safety at Lubbock international airport and he says he has never heard of the business travel coalition. He said it's no surprise that airlines are under a lot of stress because of fuel prices, but the airport has not been contacted about any reductions.
Some other airports in Texas that made the list are El Paso, Abilene, Amarillo, and Midland.
NewsChannel 11 called and left a message for the Business Travel Coalition but they did not return our call.
