CINCINNATI (AP) - Cincinnati's shrinking main airport is
exploring whether to demolish two of its three terminals.
A $31 million renovation at Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky
International Airport is putting all its passenger gates into
Terminal 3. The Cincinnati Enquirer reports (http://cin.ci/vsvhhL )
the airport in the Kentucky suburbs is paying a consultant $85,000
to study whether the 65-year-old Terminal 1 and the 37-year-old
Terminal 2 should be torn down.
Terminal 1 now houses the airport's administrative offices.
Airport CEO Candace McGraw has said that moving them, possibly into
Terminal 3, could save $1.5 million in annual operating and
maintenance costs for Terminal 1.
The airport now has a lot of empty space because of cutbacks by
Delta Air Lines, which has made big cutbacks in its Cincinnati hub.
