Within the next 90 days, portions of GSP’s $125 million terminal renovation project, Wingspan, will be completed, including the glass façade and the North Wing, airport president and CEO Dave Edwards reported.
Business and government leaders from across the Upstate gathered at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport last week for Upstate SC Alliance’s monthly series, Coffee and Conversation.
The meeting’s theme, “GSP: A Key Element to the Success of the Upstate,” featured an update presentation from Edwards.
The makeover includes new baggage carousels, curbside canopies to shelter walkways and several new vendors, including Dunkin’ Donuts, Flatwood Grill and Hudson News. An RJ Rockers will be located on Concourse A and a Thomas Creek Grill on Concourse B, Edwards reported.
The North Wing will serve as a temporary location for the airline ticket counters and will eventually house the second baggage claim area.
Airport officials are eyeing early 2016 as a completion date for the remainder of the terminal renovations.
The presentation also provided updates on the airport’s growth initiative, GSP360, and its continued efforts to expand air and cargo service. GSP360 stems from a land-use planning and development study commissioned by the airport district, and features nine tracts of land to be developed and made available to companies and corporations from across the region and around the globe.
GSP remains focused on a higher-quality customer experience and building strong partnerships within the community, Edwards said.
