Govt reviews albany air service options
The new service will improve the Albany International Airport’s reliability by reducing delays, boosting passenger traffic and lowering costs, officials with the city said Monday.
About 60 percent of air traffic in Albany depends on the Albany International Airport because it is so far south from New York City. But this winter, the airport’s operators are considering relocating to a new terminal in the town of North Albany, said John Rauff, a spokesman for the Albany Office of Airports.
The new Albany International Airport will include about 20 new passenger terminals군산출장샵 that will allow frequent daily ar태양 성 카지노rivals to the airport and allows the airport to offer more service than it did during peak hours during the 1950s and ’60s, Rauff said.
A new terminal will be in the form of a new five-story building that will open in 2018, according to a news release from the Albany Office of Airports. The facility also will have an expanded terminal lounge.
Officials are expecting the airport will benefit financially by the additional service and increased passenger traffic because about 40 percent of albany’s traffic is done by airport businesses, Rauff said.
There was no direct impact of the new terminal on travel in Albany in the first quarter of 2017, but the addition of the new terminal at the airport will help reduce delays at the airport, Rauff said.
The new facility will also help keep air traffic from falling into a downward spiral, he said.
Rauff and Jeff Lutz, Albany’s manager of air services, said they did not have any data on how the airport will be funded in the years following the relocating airport. They noted that the new terminal will be built within sight of Albany State College, a major destination for tourists from around the world.
The $8 million cost of the airport’s relocation — including the $10 million cost of the new facilities, transportation and infrastructure — will come to $38 million in the second quarter, the Albany Airport Development Corp. said.
The new facility will also benefit from the expansion of the city’s transportation infrastructure mgm 바카라 조작that will increase the number of flights and improve travel times for Albany residents, he said.
