Airport Improvements

Airport Improvements

At Columbia Regional Airport, we’re constantly striving to improve the customer experience. Our terminal, which was built in 1968 and has three temporary modular structures attached, is showing signs of wear and at certain times of the day is over crowded. The terminal space was squeezed many years ago as security concerns grew and TSA required additional screening space. Our secure passenger holding area does not have access to restrooms or a place to obtain light snacks or beverages.

Our runways and taxiways, while safe for commercial and general aviation traffic, need improvements and in some cases, replacement.

We have a master plan to address all of these issues. Currently, our master plan is being revised to show the footprint of where a new terminal may someday be constructed.

A recent article surmises that the sea ports and train stations may soon be replaced with more regional airports as the demand for air service continues to grow
