Transition To New Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport Terminal Begins Tuesday

The transition to the new Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport terminal begins Tuesday.

The last flight out of the old terminal departs on Tuesday afternoon.  Once those passengers are through security the TSA will begin moving their equipment to the new terminal.  The first passengers to use the new terminal will arrive on Tuesday’s midnight flight from Seattle.  The new terminal will then become fully operational Wednesday morning when the first departing passengers arrive for the early morning flight to Seattle.

The new 92-million-dollar terminal at Schweitzer Field features jetways and a baggage carousel.  The new facility is nearly six times the size of the old terminal.  The new building can handle airliners up to a 757.

The old terminal opened in 1990.  The Pullman-Moscow Regional Airport Board hasn’t decided yet what to do with the old building.
