HP/US To Take Gate E-4 At MSP?

Fri Nov 18, 2005 8:31 am

NW will be transfering gate E-3 to FL on December 6th so FL has room for their new 4x daily MSP-MDW flights. Gate E-4 is used by ATA and will be vacant after November 30th. Is US going to acquire this gate so they can move HP operations in with US operations? If so, any timeline for the MSP switch?

I have often wondered the same thing

With UA and AC in E it makes since for star conections. But rumors have been that all OA carriers will move to HHH.

but with all the reduced flights and the situation NW is in now, they may not. I believe the expansion plans have been put on hold by MAC due to the financial situation of NW

The Humphrey Terminal expansion project has been delayed from 2007 to 2008/possibly 2009. This delay was at NW's request as they need fewer gates than they had originally projected.

USFLyer MSP is right about the HHH expansion is on hold.
But they are putting in the jet fuel pipeline between H-10 and the new fire station.

So I think they are going to go head and build the new ramp so there is room for planes to park, then down the road build the addition.
