Terminal Modernization Program
The three-year, $80 million terminal renovation and modernization program will position Port Columbus International Airport for future passenger activity and reinforce the airport’s $3.7 billion annual economic impact to the Columbus region. On this page you can find details about the program including updates, phasing, renderings, bid opportunities and more!
With no signficant impact to operations during construction, the program will:
- Build upon the functional characteristics of the existing 55-year-old terminal structure to look and operate like new
- Ensure the functional lifespan of the Port Columbus terminal for at least another 20 years
- Utilize energy and environmentally-efficient materials
- Minimize financial impact to airline partners by funding the program with capital reserves and Passenger Facility Charges (PFCs), which airlines already collect for airport improvements
Periodic renovation updates appear here with more frequent, behind-the-wall photo journal updates posted on CMH Facebook. Port Columbus appreciates everyone’s patience while we create a more contemporary airport experience for you.
|Port Columbus completes first phase of $80 million terminal modernization program – Concourse A now offers contemporary comfort and convenience.|
|Nearly a year after Port Columbus embarked on a major initiative to upgrade its three-concourse terminal, renovations are complete in the six-gate Concourse A where Vino Volo and hometown Donatos Pizza will soon offer additional food and beverage options for Southwest and AirTran passengers. |
Work was completed within the budgeted $3.5 million for Concourse A renovations.
“The [Airport Authority] project team was receptive to our ideas and very responsive to our needs and concerns. Our Southwest team appreciates the ‘new’ concourse with all the added amenities.”
|$5.9 million Concourse C transformation expected to be finalized by end of 2013|
|Collaborative renovation efforts continue in Concourse C where Delta Air Lines passengers and staff are seeing visible progress and getting the feel of the modernized terminal where gate holdrooms have been upgraded with new lighting, carpeting, paint, wall tile and more. |
Construction barriers will continue shifting throughout the terminal walkway as contractors complete the multi-step terrazzo flooring installation which will be completed in the next few months.
Restrooms are also under construction near gates C51-C56, so after progressing through Concourse C checkpoint, you’ll find men’s and women’s restroom facilities to the right, across from Starbucks. The new restrooms are expected to be operational late October.
Port Columbus thanks our loyal passengers and Delta Air Lines partners for their patience while we work to improve their airport experience.
