NORTH­WEST FLORI­DA BEACH­ES INTER­NA­TION­AL AIR­PORT UNVEILS NEW TER­MI­NAL EXPAN­SION PROJECT

PANA­MA CITY BEACH, Fla. (July 30, 2020) – The North­west Flori­da Beach­es Inter­na­tion­al Air­port (ECP) unveiled its brand-new Ter­mi­nal expan­sion on Wednes­day with a rib­bon cut­ting cer­e­mo­ny attend­ed by ECP Board Mem­bers, Staff and partners. 

The 7,000-square foot Ter­mi­nal Expan­sion, which will relo­cate Gates 6 and 7 and ulti­mate­ly pro­vide either ramp load­ing or pas­sen­ger board­ing bridge oppor­tu­ni­ties for pas­sen­ger. Amer­i­can Air­lines will be oper­at­ing at on gate and the oth­er will be uti­lized to accom­mo­date increased future demand. The mul­ti-mil­lion-dol­lar expan­sion fea­tures close to 250 more seats, giv­ing addi­tion­al room for Air­port growth and address­ing pas­sen­ger trav­el demands. 

We have tried to antic­i­pate the future demands of our air­line part­ners, enabling the Air­port to be ready to accom­mo­date more flights, dif­fer­ent air­craft and des­ti­na­tions in the future,” said Park­er W. McClel­lan, Jr., A.A.E., ECP Exec­u­tive Direc­tor. This new Ter­mi­nal expan­sion pro­vides the addi­tion­al space need­ed to accom­mo­date the demand of today and in the near future.”

The $5.8M Ter­mi­nal expan­sion was an eco­nom­i­cal and smart way to quick­ly and effi­cient­ly meet the grow­ing demand ECP sees among pas­sen­gers and air­line part­ners. As a mod­u­lar build­ing, this allows the Air­port the flex­i­bil­i­ty to move the struc­ture in the future, if need be. 

The Ter­mi­nal expan­sion is antic­i­pat­ed to be ready to wel­come pas­sen­gers in ear­ly August.
