🕐 1 min read

 

WICHITA FALLS, Texas (AP) — A North Texas airport has a new terminal in a $21 million project to make travel easier for passengers.

Officials with Wichita Falls Municipal Airport have scheduled an open house Saturday to provide a closer look at the 52,000-square-foot facility.

The complex is a joint military/civilian airport sharing runways with Sheppard Air Force Base. The new facility includes a special passenger area for military personnel and their families.

The new terminal has two passenger gates with jet bridges. Officials say the expanded facility has the ability to serve larger charter aircraft, along with a regional carrier of American Airlines providing flights to and from Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

The update announced Monday includes plans for demolition of the existing terminal, set for next month.
