Albuquerque International Sunport Set To Begin Major Renovation Project
February 24, 2017
ALBUQUERQUE, NM – The Albuquerque International Sunport today kicked-off a major renovation project that will refurbish and upgrade the ticketing, baggage claim and exterior areas of the terminal. The Terminal Improvement Project (TIP) will take approximately 15 months and greatly enhance the pre-security areas of the terminal.
The Sunport is the front porch for the entire State of New Mexico,” said Mayor Richard Berry. “It has been nearly thirty years since any major upgrades to this portion of the facility, which is why this project is so vitally important as we continue to see more residents and visitors pass through the terminal as they visit our great state.”
The $30 million project will be paid for through the airport capital program, with no use of general fund money or no new debt being issued. The architect for the project was SMPC and the general contractor is Flintco. Passengers will see little disruption as the project will be completed in phases and much of the work done at night.
The Albuquerque International Sunport is owned by the City of Albuquerque and operated by the Aviation Department. For Sunport information, please visit our website at www.abqsunport.com or call (505) 244-7700.
