BFL New Domestic Terminal Opens Monday

Fri Feb 24, 2006 6:05 am

First flights will depart from Bakersfield's new terminal on Monday the 27th. Rumor is that a few late night arriving flights may actually arrive at the new building on Sunday the 26th to avoid having to relocate aircraft to the new building for Monday departures..

Barring unexpected delays the first departure from the building on Monday should be a UAX flight to LAX at 6AM followed closely by DLConn to SLC.

A public open house is scheduled for this Saturday the 25th. Last chance to wander around without a ticket.

The official ribbon cutting will be Monday at 11:30am.

The new Bakersfield terminal opened yesterday, hopefully someone can go get some a.net pictures.

In the meantime here is a 2 minute video of opening day showing the building and a few passenger interviews.

And an article about the first day in a new building.
