Aviation key to terminal's design

Jun. 19--The new terminal at Wichita's Mid-Continent Airport will be larger, easier to navigate and will better capitalize on Wichita's aviation heritage than the one that is there now. That's the thrust of new schematic designs unveiled for the...

The new terminal is supposed to solve those problems and more. It will be able to handle 2 million passengers a year and could be expanded to move up to 2.4 million people through a year. It will have 10 boarding gates and could accommodate more planes if they are smaller regional jets. If approved, construction could begin in late 2008 and the new airport could be ready for passengers in 2011.

The existing terminal will be demolished once the new one is built.
