A pioneer for the Columbus Region

One International Gateway is a vision for the future of John Glenn Columbus International Airport (CMH), unifying a variety of projects, developments and improvements under one cohesive plan. One International Gateway is bringing a new hotel (fall 2020), new rental car facility (summer 2021) and increased airport parking to CMH, key elements that will greatly improve the traveler experience.

With a more modern look, greater technology features and increased options and services, this project will give visitors one more reason to love coming to Columbus—and will give residents one more reason to love coming home.

Driving economic growth, connecting Ohio with the world

In scope and size, this development marks a bold new chapter in the Columbus Region’s future. It will fuel economic growth and solidify our position as a key global gateway connecting Ohio with the world.

We are proud to be an independent organization that can bring this innovative development to Columbus. We’ll use rental car user fees to pay for the rental car facility. We will explore a variety of funding sources for the remainder of the projects including grants, savings, partnerships, passenger facility charges, FAA funds and borrowing responsibly.
