Bishop Airport in Michigan, USA, will unveil its completed US$16.8 million (£10.5 million) expansion project today (13 November) at a special dedication ceremony, The Flint Journal has reported.

Approximately 100 people are expected to attend the event, which will feature speakers from the community, state and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).

According to The Flint Journal, the expansion project included a larger Transportation Security Administration area as well as the addition of 47,000ft² terminal space, four gates and double the width of the corridor linking two sections of the airport.

The project was funded by both the FAA (approximately US$7 million) and the airport’s reserve funds (approximately US$9 million), which will be paid back via passenger facilities charges.

The airport expansion will increase capacity from one million to two million passengers annually, The Flint Journal reported.
