The massive modernization plans come only six months after Delta Air Lines de-hubbed the airport due to its close proximity to its primary hub in Atlanta.

“We have begun the process of reinventing the Memphis Airport,” said Scott Brockman, Memphis-Shelby County Airport Authority President and CEO in a statement. “Part of that reinvention involves consolidating operations so we can better serve our passengers, airlines, concessionaires, and employees. More importantly, we’re going to modernize the B Concourse, giving our passengers more room to move, better lighting and more convenience.”

To increase the experience at MEM, upgrades to the concourse include the addition of moving walkways, a wider concourse, taller ceilings, and increased levels of natural light.  The airport also plans perform seismic upgrades to the building during construction.

The projected $114 million project will begin this year with the removal of the south end of Concourse A and apron upgrades on the west side of the courtyard.  The airport anticipates all upgrades will be completed in 2020.
