Watertown Regional Airport looking for new car rental company

WATERTOWN, S.D.(KXLG)- Watertown Regional Airport has released a proposal request for a new car rental company.

Deputy Mayor/Councilman Randy Tupper.

Proposals will be accepted until September 20, 2023, at 3:00 p.m.

It also states, “Since the Watertown Regional Airport recently gained non-hub primary airport status, it is required to have an Airport Concession Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (ACDBE) program in accordance with regulations of the US Department of Transportation 49 CFR Part 26.  The ACDBE program is being developed.  All ACDBE firms and small businesses qualifying under this solicitation are encouraged to submit proposals.”

Business travelers may be impacted the most.

Tupper says a company is servicing customers, but they are not “one-way” rentals, which can be rented in one location and returned to another.
