I was just browsing the TF Greene Master Plan and have a few question for the Quahogs out there...

a. When is construction on the upgraded terminal supposed to start?

b. How many gates are they anticipating with the completion of the first half? Second half?

c. Why are they funneling 2 ticket counter ares into 1 security area? Is this new security area supposed to be hella big or something?

d. As I'm sure there should be, any possible International airline rumors flying around? Besides the Azores flight....


Aiming High and going far..

I know PVD pretty well, I can take a stab at C and D.

C. In reality, there is not really 2 ticketing areas. It is one big open area with counters to the left and right (looking from the main entrance). The area in the middle is the escalators to the baggage claim. It's actually not all that big, although Rhode Island Airport Corporation (RIAC) has done a good job utilizing the space they had and they are trying to find a way to expand it. The security area is actually pretty big, last time I was there, it had 10-12 metal detectors.

D. We actually have daily Beech 1900 service to Toronto on an AC commuter carrier (I forget the name). Other than that and the Azores service, I have heard about a North American 738 charter to AUA (Aruba), I think it is/has already operated but I'm not sure.

GD727...

c. In their Master Plan for the airport at 2010 and 2030.. they have 2 ticketing areas.. the current one (2 sided), and then a new one to the right of the current (on the other side of the wall from the USAirways counter).. They will both funnel into 1 security area which will be located to the right of the current eatery (beside the bookstore to the right of the current security area) in between the 2 ticketing areas.

D. Are there any plans for International airlines after the first phase of the terminal renovation are completed? Looking on their diagrams, they seem to have some large A/C in their drawings.. just wondering if anything was being discussed that someone would have heard about.

C. The security area right now is actually pretty big (even though there are still lines), so I guess this one will be even bigger.

D. I haven't heard anything, but I'm sure RIAC has brought it up and it sounds like it could be a reality, especially with the planned runway 5/23 extension.

Again, I'm not sure though, PVD757 would know better since he actually works for RIAC.
