I posted a thread recently on the fact that the new MBS terminal would be opening a year early. The ribbon has been cut and a open house to the public has taken place. As noted in the previous thread this project has been six years in the making. The first flight from this new terminal is a 6 a.m. departure on October 31.

I know what many of you are thinking. Why the new terminal in light of the fact that MBS has little air service. A good question however the management felt that it was time to replace the 1960ish terminal. In spite of the heavy draw that FNT has I wish them the best of luck and hope that a new terminal will be appealing to another airline and the overall tri-city area.

Perhaps it is a good time to build new. Since labor costs should be lower, since there is a larger pool of skilled workers. Also, lower demand for the building products might have made prices lower. Also, the service there seems relatively stable so they should be able to build for current need with a bit of cushion for future 'good-times' additional service. Somewhat like Minot,ND is having now, over their 4 NW DC-9s to MSP that used to be it not to long ago.

Looks like a winner from what I saw. Plus, opening up so much earlier than anticipated? How nice.

Quoting KarlB737 (Thread starter):

G4 tried MBS and it didn't work, so that's out.

Currently, MBS is served by DL (DTW, MSP) and UA (ORD). I could see DL service to Atlanta and/or the return of Eagle to ORD, but not much else.

How long til we get a "I can see Southwest coming here and flying to BWI, ATL, MCO, PHX, LAS and 12 other cities!!!!" post?

No doubt its a nice looking terminal but I don't think that there will ever be major growth there.

GRR could really use some updating. The main terminal isn't too bad, but the A & B concourses are right out of the 60's / 70's. At very least they should raise the ceilings in the hallways and put some sort of clerestory windows to open things up a bit.

Direct KNOBS, maintain 2700' until established on the localizer, cleared ILS runway 26 left approach.
