MERIDIAN, Miss. (AP) — The Meridian Airport Authority plans an open house Tuesday to highlight improvements at the local airport.
The Meridian Star reports that work included a new hangar at Dean Aircraft; and renovations at Meridian Aviation and the airport terminal.
Tuesday’s event begins with a dedication ceremony at the terminal building. A display area will explain the renovation project along with other projects under construction or proposed on airport property. Shuttles will take visitors to Dean Aircraft and Meridian Aviation.
Renovation of the terminal included expansion of both the public and the secure waiting areas and interior improvements.
The new hangar and maintenance support facility at Dean Aircraft has space for 6-to-12 planes at a time, depending on size.
Work at Meridian Aviation, the airport’s fixed base operator, included several upgrades.
