Augusta Regional Airport unveils new logo in time for added flights during Masters
AUGUSTA, Ga. (WRDW/WAGT) - Just ahead of Masters week and an accompanying increase in direct flights to and from places across the U.S., Augusta Regional Airport unveiled a new logo Monday morning.
The blue-and-green chevron features a stylized airplane in the middle, adorning a new sign in front of the airport off Doug Barnard Parkway.
“Our previous logo, we had it for quite some time and we felt it had run its course so with many of the changes going on at the airport and the new energy here,” said Herbert L. Judon Jr., airport executive director. “We thought it was a great time to break out a fresh logo.”
The new logo goes hand-in-hand with the airport’s Advancing Growing Stronger campaign that began five years ago, encompassing consumer-centric improvements like the restroom renovations and the upcoming addition of more boarding bridges and a rental car facility.
Judon said airport officials are excited for visitors and local residents who will use the airport. For them, the logo will add a unique touch to the experience, he said.
“We think that the logo from a branding standpoint, we want people to associate the logo with the airport when they see it, and that it’s just kind of top of mind.”
Plus having a new logo is a call to action for officials to “continue to grow the airport and put the energy into adding new services to the airport,” he said.
Some of the people who’ll see the new logo include fliers coming in for the Masters Tournament in April – many of them coming on nonstop flights from places across the U.S. just for the special week. The two carriers at the airport, Delta and American, have both added flights and capacity.
