The new terminal is a very contemporary and energy efficient building. It provides 29,537 gsf of modern conveniences such as a passenger loading bridge for efficient circulation, especially in inclement weather, updated passenger processing and security systems. Some other new features include a passenger baggage carousel, seating for 180 passengers in the Transportations Safety Administration’s “Secure Waiting Area” for outbound passengers and comfort facilities. Tenants include a full-service travel agency, a car rental service and a “Grab and Go” food service in the lobby area.
The state-of-the-art terminal replaced the original structure that was servicing the community since 1948 without interrupting its operation and service to the community. Murray Associates was selected to design a new terminal facility to recruit additional airlines and efficiently process increased passenger traffic through the building.
