Enhancing Passenger Experience

The new terminal is designed to provide a seamless and comfortable experience for passengers. Key features will include:

  • Expanded Check-in and Security Areas: With 16 check-in desks and ten immigration counters, the new terminal will streamline passenger processing and reduce wait times.
  • Concession Spaces: The terminal will house four food and beverage spaces, along with shopping and duty-free areas, offering passengers a variety of options to enjoy while waiting for their flights.
  • VIP Lounge: A dedicated VIP lounge will cater to premium passengers, providing a luxurious and relaxing environment.

Economic and Community Impact

The redevelopment of the Clayton J. Lloyd International Airport is not just about enhancing infrastructure; it is also about fostering economic growth and community development. The project is expected to:

  • Boost Local Economy: By increasing the airport’s capacity and efficiency, the redevelopment will attract more tourists and business travelers, stimulating local businesses and creating job opportunities.
  • Improve Operational Efficiency: The new facilities and upgraded infrastructure will enable the airport to handle a higher volume of passengers and aircraft, leading to more efficient operations and reduced delays.
  • Enhance Safety and Security: Advanced lighting systems, improved drainage, and expanded aprons will ensure safer and more reliable aircraft movements, particularly during nighttime and adverse weather conditions.

Looking Ahead

Kelly Construction is committed to delivering this project with the highest standards of quality and efficiency. The construction began on April 15, 2024, with an expected completion date in the fall of 2025. Upon completion, the old terminal will be demolished to make way for further apron expansion, ensuring the airport can accommodate larger aircraft and more flights.
