Lauderdale Realizes They Need More Gates...

Fri Oct 06, 2006 11:32 am

Report calls for Lauderdale airport to add more gates to handle increased traffic.

I'm sure jetBlue would like to see the go ahead with most of this stuff...It would be an early Christmas/Channukah gift!

Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport must add more than 20 gates in order to handle the expected growth in air travel over the next 15 years, consultants told Broward County commissioners in a report released Thursday.

Better find a way to increase runway availability. Gates are no good if you can't get to, or off of them.
I don't understand everything I don't know about this.

Quoting SPREE34 (Reply 1):

The runway issue is a much bigger inhibitor to growth at FLL than gate space at the present moment. Bulldoze the homes of a few of the local NIMBY's!  banghead

Commissioners said that before they decide about adding gates, they must choose what to do about the runway.

And in other news, a pig just completed his first solo...
