New Terminal Recommended for Des Moines Airport

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A consultant is recommending a new $468 million terminal for the Des Moines International Airport.

The Des Moines Register reports a report from aviation consulting firm Leigh Fisher released Tuesday follows a seven-month study. The Airport Authority Board will consider a more detailed report in April, then vote how to proceed.

The consultant's proposal calls for building an 18-gate terminal on the south side of the airport beginning in 2022.

Officials say the 65-year-old current terminal is too small and outdated, but restrictions due to the adjacent runway won't allow an expansion.

Tom Schnetzer, a director with Leigh Fisher, says the current facilities will be inadequate when the passenger count reaches 2.5 million, expected by 2027.

The cost would be covered by federal grants and fees charged to airlines.
