COVER STORY
The new terminal
at Eagle County
Regional Airport
will have a
modern western
feel to it.
HENSEL PHELPS

working with Southwest Airlines to
update digital signage and wayfinding
throughout the terminal. The signage
informs passengers about boarding and
how full their flight is.
"It gives the terminal a fresher look,"
he said. "And when you're walking
around the terminal, you can see you're
about a two minute walk from the
nearest Starbucks, your f light is going
to be 80 percent full today, so stretch
out a little bit now."

Eagle County Soars into
new era
Eagle County Regional Airport is in
the process of completing a $35 million

renovation to its terminal, where it will
upgrade passenger amenities and add
about 25,000 square feet of space.
Jodi Doney, terminal operations
manager for the Eagle County Regional
Airport, said the old facility was more
than 20 years old and due to increased
traffic, officials needed to expand the
facility to accommodate not only current
needs, but future growth.
"We're really seeing larger aircraft,
more frequency and our terminal was
20 years old and wasn't able to handle
the capacity" she said.
The project includes the installation
of four JBT boarding bridges in the
terminal and two ground loading gates.

It's the first time the airport has had
boarding bridges and it has also moved
away from proprietary gates.
"We're an all-weather city. We get all
the seasons and all the unique weather
that comes with that," Doney said. "For
passengers, the experience of slushing
through the snow can be exciting, but
for the most part, I think they prefer to
be on a jet bridge."
Doney said the airport also lacked
a proper amount of seating. She said
the airport worked with Gensler to
determine the proper amount of space
to seat ratio in the terminal to get the
right combination of seating, benches and
standing desks at the gate areas.
"We did incorporate quite a bit of
power and that's something we don't
have today," she said. "We'll have power
seating, we'll have some desk units that
have power and that was a big upgrade
to the terminal."
Doney said the airport has some
limitations with adding power overall

Together, we keep
the world moving.
