Clinton National Airport starts USD20m concourse renovation

Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport in Little Rock, Arkansas has started a USD20.6 million concourse renovation to improve the passenger experience at the Arkansas airport, the company said.

The company said this year-long project will include amenities not often found at larger airports. It will also complement other improvements completed within the past three years. The renovation includes new gate seating with in-seat recharge, faster wi-fi with speeds above 100 Mbps and installation of a distributed antenna system.

Including the current work, the Little Rock Municipal Airport Commission has invested nearly USD90 million in terminal enhancements during the past six years. The current project will be funded with passenger facility charges and airport retained earnings.

Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport serves nearly two million passengers annually. The airport is home to six airlines with approximately 70 daily arrivals and departures. The state of Arkansas estimates that the airport makes a USD1.2 billion economic impact each year
