Key West International Airport celebrated a groundbreaking ceremony that marked the beginning of its $100-million expansion on Wednesday.
The Concourse A terminal expansion is expected to take two and a half years to complete. It will improve the airport’s service and operational flexibility, featuring just under 50,000 square feet of space with a departure area, additional baggage and concession areas, restrooms, support areas and an upgraded security checkpoint. Additionally, the expansion will allow for seven passenger boarding jet bridges.
Concourse A will be made accessible to the rest of the airport via an extended pedestrian bridge.
