Januska doesn’t know how all the extra security is going to be handled.Sioux Gateway is also home to an Iowa Air National Guard base, which Januska says puts them under different circumstances than other airports.He says the military can take over the airport if needed during a time of war. The director of the Eastern Iowa Airport near Cedar Rapids says they’re ready to go and certified by the FAA.Director Larry Mullendore expects operations to get going slowly, and eventually pick back up.
