See from slides 119 and on. Massport has plans to add 4 new gates - 2 in Terminal B and 2 in Terminal C. Also some details on the B to C connector as well as roadway enhancements.
Well this was what we have been waiting for, at least some answers to many of the questions. When is the move. June 19, WN is not going to grow above 5 gates, meaning they will cap themselves at between 50 and 55 departures a day. AS/VX and SY are moving back to B (although i don't see where SY are going in Pier B), AS/VX are capped at 2 gates, meaning max of 20 departures a day, but given they are pretty much all transcons, not sure that will ever be hit.
Loving the changes to C, it desperately needs it, although I have to say, going reverse by being dropped off at arrivals in the am and departures at night, definitely avoids the general nightmare of that terminal. Highly unlikely Phase I of E will be completed by 2022, but you never know. They need those extra 4 gates though. That could allow around 16-20 flights a day. One thing I notice, appears to be no movement of TP or EI back to E out of this and I guess 9K is always going to stay at C27, even though really they might be better suited at C40 or C42, might be a spacing issue, especially when they put C43.
The question is, whether those extra B gates will allow someone like F9 in the door or be used for expansion. And that gate over by the rest rooms, isn't that going to get blocked when the EI 330 turns up?
At least the picture is finally becoming clear. Although i partly agree with RL757PVD, the cost burden will be very interesting for that.
Anybody see the obvious age of the photo in slide 122?...
The agenda for tomorrow includes the FY18-22 Capital plan, that will include timing for the E expansions and proposed costs along with all the other projects they intend to do/thinking about. That will certainly give us a bit more info about Massport life
That feeling when you sit at the end of a runway, brakes are released and the raw power takes over. Now that is a thing of beauty and it never gets old.
