BURLINGTON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT (WCAX) - The Burlington International Airport’s terminal integration project is off and running, and is scheduled to be finished in one year.

The official groundbreaking took place Thursday with local, state and federal officials on hand, as they prepare for a new-look airport.

State officials hope it will be able to accommodate more people and even welcome new business to the area.

“There will be one checkpoint which is this building, there will be additional holdroom space, additional seating, additional capacity for potentially new airlines, new entities, new concessions, new future of the airport,” said Nic Longo, the acting airport director.

The airport is still without a permanent airport director and Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger says they’ve put off the formal search for a candidate right now because they’ve been focusing on projects like this one.
