The Lincoln Airport ( is getting a major facelift to its almost 50 year old terminal building. Sampson Construction, the general contractor, has been hard at work constructing a 35,000-squarefoot addition, with plans for phase one to be complete around the beginning of the summer.

Opening the north part of the terminal will triple the number of gates, consolidate security and ticketing operations, and provide an upgraded restaurant and concessions area. Once the northern part of the terminal opens, construction will shift to the south end which will take roughly eight to ten months to complete. Most of that construction will consist of administrative offices and a new board/community room which will fit up to 100 people.

The Airport recently announced new service to Houston on United Airlines which has been performing better than expected, and LNK hopes people who want to travel south during the colder months continue to take advantage of the new route and support flying local.
