KANSAS CITY, Mo. — It’s been a busy month so far for crews working on the new KCI Airport terminal.

Travelers are starting to see glimpses of what the final terminal will resemble. Build KCI released a rendering of what they hoped the terminal would end up looking like.

This is what the actual terminal looks like right now. You can see that the colors, windows, lighting, and the exposed wood ceiling are represented in both the mockup and the actual design.

Meanwhile, workers have completed more than 80% of the roof on the new terminal. They are also adding windows to the new structure.

According to updates developers add to Twitter, there should be air conditioning blowing through the new terminal this summer.

Crews are also adding dozens of sets of exterior emergency stairs to Concourse A. You can also see the foundation and footing for one of the all-glass passenger boarding bridges that will be installed next year.

The new $1.5 billion terminal project reached it’s halfway point in March. As of now, developers say the terminal is on schedule and on budget.

Crews broke ground in 2019, and the new terminal is scheduled to open in March of 2023.
