Beginning Monday, March 21, 2016, construction work will begin on a new, six lane, consolidated passenger screening checkpoint. The project will serve to renovate the existing terminal atrium area and will shift security screening functions to allow for a more efficient flow of passengers.
The project will run through the busy summer travel period and is expected to be completed prior to the Thanksgiving holiday. The airport will be working very closely with construction manager, Harvey Construction, to ensure that there will be minimal impacts to the traveling public and appropriate communications are disseminated. Construction updates will be posted on the airport’s website, flymanchester.com, as well as through its social media venues.
Passengers are urged to be in the terminal building two hours prior to their scheduled departure time for the duration of the project. Further, passengers should be aware that there will be a number of temporary signs in place directing them to the appropriate passenger screening area and other facilities. Additional airport personnel will be on hand throughout the project to answer any questions and direct passengers as necessary.
Airport Director Mark Brewer commented, “We are very excited to embark on a project which will not only enhance the layout of our existing facility, but will also improve passenger flows and queuing in the security checkpoint area. Ultimately, it will lead to a better customer experience and leave a lasting, positive impression on travelers.”
