Additional flights out of Missoula?  Additional airlines operating out of Missoula International Airport?

The construction project happening at the airport aims to make those thoughts a reality.  The three-year, $67 million project includes an additional gate, new security checkpoint, new gift shop and additional parking.

With the weather changing, the focus is shifting from outdoor to indoor construction.  The new security checkpoint is scheduled to be finished by December.



And good news if you plan to do any holiday travel.  An additional parking lot will be open for the heavier travel schedule.

Missoula International Airport Director Cris Jensen said they hope to have most of the project completed by 2021.
