Aviation executives involved in talks about bringing passenger jets to a suburban Atlanta airport confirmed Thursday they would partner with a European airport firm if plans for commercial flights are approved.

New York-based Propeller Investments said it would partner with a Paris airport manager to operate Briscoe Field if Gwinnett County officials approve its plans to launch commercial flights.

Jacques Follain, CEO of Aeroports de Paris, said it seems clear that a second commercial airport would be successful in metro Atlanta.

In the past, Propeller has said it wants to build a 10-gate terminal at the Lawrenceville airport and begin commercial flights to New York, Chicago and other cities using Boeing 737s, which seat up to 140 passengers.
