Airport Consultant Knocks KCI Alternative

(AP) – A consultant for airlines that use the Kansas City airport says a plan to renovate the airport is unacceptable.
Lou Salomon, chief operating officer of AvAirPros, said Tuesday a plan submitted by Crawford Architects did not address the airport’s future needs for such things as gates, concessions and room for larger aircraft.
City and aviation officials have been discussing for more than four years a plan to demolish the airport and replace it with a single terminal. Some citizens want to keep the current three-terminal design.
Crawford suggested expanding Terminal A and doing similar work on Terminal B in the future.
The Kansas City Star reports (http://bit.ly/1SriXZV ) Salomon told the Kansas City Council’s airport committee the plan would cost about $984 million, not the $672 million estimated by Crawford.
