JAA Board Approves Resuming Jacksonville International Airport Expansion Design Work

Via Jacksonville Daily Record
Jacksonville International Airport is working to expand with Concourse B. This is a site plan from 2011.

The Jacksonville Aviation Authority board agreed Aug. 2 to reappropriate $3 million to resume design work on Jacksonville International Airport’s Concourse B expansion that was postponed last year because of the coronavirus pandemic.

The board voted 7-0 to move the money from an employee parking lot relocation to the six-gate terminal project, according to WJCT News partner the Jacksonville Daily Record.

JAA Chief Operating Officer Tony Cugno told the board the Concourse B design will cost $15.6 million and take 18 months.

He said JAA executives plan to return to the board to request the remaining $12.6 million after the 2021-22 fiscal year begins Oct. 1.

Cugno said reviving Concourse B is a result of passenger traffic rebounding from the pandemic lull faster than airlines and aviation industry analysts predicted.
