A new era is on the horizon for the Buffalo Niagara International Airport.

The airport is set to begin an $80 million renovation project which will improve: pedestrian flow, curbside congestion, meet and greet facilities, baggage claim capacity, and security according to an NTFA spokesperson.

The project is scheduled to begin this month, December 18th, with major construction set for the spring of 2019.

The current terminal is more than 20-years old and passenger traffic is trending ahead of the levels that were anticipated in the pre-9/11 terminal design.

According to the NFTA, effective terminal use and operations are being increasingly impacted by congestion and capacity constraints.

The project is set to be completed in 2021.
