Progress at New Airport Terminal

News

BROWNSVILLE, Texas — The Brownsville South Padre Island International Airport is expected to have its new terminal building by the end of 2020.

Since breaking ground nearly three years ago, the project remains on budget and on schedule.

Once the new terminal is open, the existing one will be demolished and will be partially used for ramp space for aircraft parking.

The total cost of the project is estimated at about $44 million. Funding comes from Brownsville organizations and the federal government.

The existing terminal is currently too small for the projected growth and for agencies like Customs and Border Protection or Transportation Security Administration.

Today’s regulations that are in place for agencies like CBP and the TSA did not exist when the airport was created.
