New Terminal Opens at Key West International Airport

The new terminal building at Key West International Airport has opened for departing passengers.

The new building is approximately 30,000 square feet and is elevated over parking. The terminal has second-level ticketing, baggage and security areas for departing passengers, restrooms, concessions, a second-level walkway, an escalator and elevator. A restaurant offers views of arriving and departing aircraft, and artwork by local artists is to be installed.

Parking for 300 vehicles (150 spaces for rental cars and 150 for the public) is at ground level beneath the new building.

The new terminal is part of a $31.6 million construction and renovation project, which will double the size of the previous airport. Construction crews are expected to begin renovating the airport soon. When that project is complete, the 24,000-square-foot building will feature a passenger arrival and baggage claim area with rental car counters, restrooms and a baggage service office. It will also have a 200-seat departure lounge with restrooms and a 160-seat restaurant and tavern.

Renovation to the existing terminal is scheduled for completion in early June. The airport remains fully operational throughout the construction project.
