Evergreen Lakefront International AirportAs part of government stimulus money, concourse A at Evergreen Lakefront International Airport was rennovated. Built as the 2nd addition to the original airport, it was completed in 1974. The old concourse was old, crowded, and very old looking on the inside and out. This is the third project of seven total airport improvements, all of which include terminal renovations and additions. The original terminal and Concourse B have already been renovated, and Terminal 2 is currently under construction. With Delta Airlines looking at expanding their hub in EVL, these improvements are long awaited.
As you can tell, the old concourse was very old looking. Passengers felt the same way, as did the airlines. The new concorse will feature larger windows, more bathrooms and stores, and 2 airline lounges (A Delta Sky Club, one of four in the airport, and an American Airlines Admirals Club, one of two at the airport.)
After over a year and a half of construction, the new concourse is finally complete. This concourse mostly handles domestic and US bound flights, as well as a few Canadian and Japanese airlines as well.
The terminal is very busy. Flight destinations (clockwise from top left): DL342 New York JFK, DL89 Seattle, DL112 Houston IAH, DL Portland OR, DL543 Nashville, WS6503 Calgary, JL926 Tokyo Haneda.
All in all, another day at the airport is over.
