WICHITA FALLS, Texas — A North Texas airport has a new terminal in a $21 million project to make travel easier for passengers.
Officials with Wichita Falls Regional Airport have scheduled an open house Saturday to provide a closer look at the 52,000-square-foot facility. Spokesman Barry Levy said Tuesday that the official terminal opening and first flight using it are Dec. 17.
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. 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 old terminal will be demolished.
