    Never heard of this until right now, thanks for the link ks77

     

    I like the idea particularly if one has quite a bit of time at the airport and the cards reveal some places to go spend some time.  But I'd trade that ATL card for just about anything else!!     How about a SFO for an EGE?

      Never heard of this either ks77.  Thanks for the info!  Very interesting program to say the least

       

      Perhaps bejacob could add collecting an airport card from everywhere he visits in addition to the county postcards??

       

      Speaking of airports and airport codes, wouldn't you like to have an itinerary that shows Fresno Yosemite International Airport to Fukuoka?  I'd type in the codes together, but I don't want to get into trouble...

       

      Yes, I'm immature, but you gotta admit it's funny!!

    I agree with Jim Gill in the last paragraph of the article (thanks for sharing)

     

    "The trading cards are an innovative and non-traditional way to share information and promote the airport," said Jim Gill, Acting Executive Director, Allegheny County Airport Authority, "but all the marketing in the world doesn't mean a lot if you're not delivering a great product."

     

    when I get IAD and DCA, I'll put them on my bike spokes (probably before your time )

    I bet the bike owner wished he had that '52 Mickey Mantle card in better shape !
