New airport terminal to open soon

The new terminal at Myrtle Beach International Airport should be open by February 19th.

Workers are finishing the drywall, tile, and the electrical system as well as the check-in areas, cabinetry, and ceiling.

The new terminal will more than double the airports size, adding seven boarding gates.

"It will be a nice product when its complete. It will be something for the public to be proud of," said Kirk Lovell, Myrtle Beach Airports Marketing Director.

Lovell adds the $118 million project is within budget.

When the new terminal opens, the old one will close to be renovated to match the new construction.
