Mason City Municipal Airport to break ground on new terminal

(ABC 6 News) – The Mason City Municipal Airport announced on Friday they will hold a ground breaking ceremony for a new terminal.

The ceremony for the new commercial service terminal will take place on Monday, September 12 at 3:00 p.m.

According to the airport, the 23,000 square foot terminal building will be constructed adjacent to the current terminal building, which was originally built in 1966.

The new terminal will provide for more gate hold space for passengers, a larger more modern security checkpoint, and additional functional spaces for the airline, bus line, transportation security administration, and airport administration.

The total program cost for the project is estimated at $13 million, including an expanded aircraft parking apron and parking lot.

The majority of the project is being funded by federal grants from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

The new facility is expected to open in the summer of 2024.
