Idaho Falls Regional Airport terminal remodeling finished

The remodeled terminal at Idaho Falls Regional Airport. That's former airport manager Jim Thorsen in the foreground. Although a frequent flier, Thorsen was at the airport Tuesday for a meeting of the Airport Citizen's Advisory Committee.
I'm not sure how many of you have been through the Idaho Falls Regional Airport lately, but the $2.7 million terminal remodeling and expansion project is finished. A ribbon cutting is scheduled for June 10. The work at the northwest end of the terminal involved 47,570 square feet. Most importantly, the TSA baggage screening operations have been taken out of the lobby and integrated into the baggage check-in process (this means no more handing your bags to TSA then hauling them across the lobby.)
