Officials want NB Airport to become corporate hub  By Greg Bowen  The Herald-Zeitung  As state contractors prepare to start a $5.4 million runway upgrade at New Braunfels Municipal Airport, city officials have in hand an airport business plan that envisions BAZ — that’s the airport’s federal identifier — becoming a hub for corporate jets along the fast-growing Austin/San Antonio corridor.  Among the recommendations in the 100-plus-page New Braunfels Municipal Airport Business Plan is redefining the airport’s image or “brand,” to achieve that vision.  The airports new branding should focus on attracting corporate aviation and aviation-related businesses, which is “paramount in improving the revenue picture in the long term,” says the plan, which was crafted by aviation consultants R.A. Wiedemann and Associates of Georgetown, Ky., in association with KSA Engineers of Austin.  An objective mentioned in the business plan is for the city-owned aiiport to be financially self-sustaining each year.
