Social Sustainability

EIA is not just at work in the air and on the ground; we’re at work in our community. We’re very proud of the relationship we’ve built with you. The new terminal, amenities and services have created a groundswell of support for EIA, and we’re so grateful. Part of our relationship with the community includes profiling all the great things our region has to offer.

EIA’s Art Program showcases local artists to the millions of people who come through the airport each year. 

Live music performances at EIA give young local artists an opportunity to play in front of an audience. At various times throughout the day, you’ll hear beautiful live music from talented performers at mini stages around the airport. Through these programs and many other initiatives, EIA works to highlight local arts and culture.

We also lend our support to community organizations. For example, in 2015, EIA’s annual Charity Golf Classic  raised $200,000 for Youth Empowerment and Support Services (YESS).  Through this and many other initiatives, we were proud to work with partners that help to make our community a great place to live.
