New York’s Greater Binghamton Airport to begin renovation

The Greater Binghamton Airport county-owned public-use airport in Broome County, New York, is set to start a project to implement a range of upgrades.


The upgrades include new charging stations for smart phones, tablets, and laptops, and a redesign of the screening checkpoint.


Other improvements include new seats with outlets, new trash cans and recycling containers, and new floors and carpets.

 

The project will also upgrade the current flight information display system, following which, the screens will display the weather in the local area, and also the weather in the destination points.


Broome County executive Debbie Preston said: "These renovations are not only necessary, but will help improve the look of the airport, giving the thousands of people visiting the community a better first impression of our county."


Of the total $750,000 required to implement the upgrades, $495,000 will come from state grant money, while the airport is covering the remainder.


The renovations are expected not to have any impact on the travellers, and are likely to be completed by the end of May.
The interior of the Greater Binghamton Airport was previously redesigned in 1999.


The new improvements are expected to enhance the travel experience of nearly 200,000 travelers passing through the airport every year.


The Greater Binghamton Airport serves three major airlines United Express, US Airways and Delta and it features close-in long and short term parking, free Wi-Fi, easy-in easy-out airline check-in and baggage claim, and TSA checkpoint lines.
