Airport Construction Update

Huntsville International's new expanded food court is expected to open on Saturday with a Gevalia coffee shop (a first for an airport), McAlister's Deli (another first), and Breyer's Ice Cream. There will also be an upscale bar with "grab and go" food and drinks next to the food court.

The food court is only a small part of the airport's $65 million expansion plan, much of which will be completed in the next year or two:
  • May 4th- the new 219-ft. control tower opens.
  • July- a new access road to Jetplex Industrial Park begins construction.
  • October- security improvements and a new taxiway.
  • December- Expansion of the main parking deck, increasing the number of parking spaces to nearly 3,000.
  • February 2009- A 92,000 sq. ft. air cargo building opens.
  • July 2009- the expanded 20,000 sq. ft. waiting area opens.
