The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has invested in key areas to help make the passenger experience more efficient and enjoyable. $1B in Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) funding has been awarded to 99 airports across the country, including Portsmouth International Airport!
Portsmouth International Airport (PSM) had been awarded $7M for the expansion and improvement of our terminal arrivals hall. The expansion will improve our arrivals capacity, alleviating current congestion, increasing accessibility, and supporting future growth at the airport. This project will also include the replacement of our old and outdated electric service, LED lighting throughout the terminal, and more windows to maximize natural light- all of which combine to help make our airport more energy efficient. Additional improvements will include a redesigned baggage claim area and the relocation of rental car counters, parking kiosks, and information and customer service booths.
We are very excited and thankful for the FAA for helping us to make our dreams a reality. Improvements will start breaking ground this spring! Check out our Terminal Expansion page for more details!
