KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Joe McBride, a spokesperson for Kansas City International Airport, announced Thursday that they have finally set a date to break ground on a new single terminal airport.
The groundbreaking ceremony for the $1.5 billion project is scheduled for Monday, March 25 at 2 p.m. City officials, airline representatives, key project partners, and labor, community, and business leaders will all be there.
The Kansas City Aviation Department and Edgemoor Infrastructure & Real Estate are expected to release more details when the ceremony gets closer, according to McBride.

The single-terminal airport will have 39 gates. Alaska Airlines, American, Delta, Southwest, and United have all signed the deal, so did shipping companies FedEx and UPS. Spirit, Frontier and Allegiant did not sign the agreement.
