$16.8 million expansion unveiled at Flint's Bishop Airport

Nov 13, 2012

Flint’s Bishop Airport unveiled a $16.8 million expansion at a public dedication ceremony Tuesday morning.

From the Flint Journal:

The construction project included a larger Transportation Security Administration area, which was opened in October.

It also added 47,000 square-feet of terminal space, four gates and doubled the width of the corridor linking two sections of the airport.

About $7 million for the project came from FAA grants and the airport used about $9 million of its reserve funds to pay for the rest.

The expansion is expected to double the airport’s capacity to accommodate 2 million passengers.
