Charleston International Airport is in need of additional space despite the recent $200 million terminal expansion and other upgrades to the facility. The airport has experienced a steady increase in travelers over the past few years and expects more than 4 million travelers this year. The Charleston County Aviation Authority presented a five-year strategic plan to the board last month to address the issue. Airport officials suggest adding more space for ticketing and check-in counters, constructing a new parking garage to accommodate more on-site parking, and upgrading the inside of the airport to offer a more welcoming and passenger-friendly experience.
Charleston is the 14th fastest-growing metro area in the U.S. and home to some of the state’s top industries. Airport officials understand that the need to accommodate more people will continue and are researching the most cost-efficient way to handle the influx.
