Bond Counsel to Kentucky's Gateway

Client: Blue Grass Airport

As gateway to the Horse Capital of the World, Lexington’s Blue Grass Airport is the primary air transportation provider for central Kentucky. The facility supports commercial flights, private aviation, cargo and, of course, horse transportation. Committed to a quality traveler experience, the airport continually updates amenities and facilities to provide passengers with the most modern and convenient services possible.

For nearly a decade, Dinsmore has served as the airport’s bond counsel, helping them secure low interest financing for growth and improvements such as runways, hangars, parking facilities, baggage belt system, car rental maintenance facility and more. 

“Dinsmore works extremely well with our financial analyst and underwriter and is now helping us with compliance/reporting issues,” said Don Sever, Director of Finance and Administration for the airport. “I really have nothing but good things to say about Dinsmore.”

The airport, which is a catalyst for economic growth in the region, is owned and operated by the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Airport Board and celebrated its 70 year anniversary in 2016.  Since 1946, the airport has grown to serving over 1.2 million passengers annually.

“I have full confidence in the firm,” Sever said.  “They are technically sound and provide great customer service.”

United by a passion for customer service, Dinsmore looks forward to the opportunity for a continued relationship with Blue Grass Airport as they grow and service passengers from all over the world.
