The chairman and vice chairman of a northern Kentucky airport board are in Italy this week at a cost of at least $20,000 for a three-day conference.
Documents obtained by the newspaper through an open records request show the first-class airfares for Huff and Savage totaled nearly $15,000. Admission to the conference for airport chief executive officers and human resources officials cost nearly $1,500 apiece, and the conference hotel costs nearly $240 a night before taxes.
The airport board defends such travel. It says attending conferences allows members to better understand airport development issues.
