PHOENIX– Prescott Regional Airport dedicated its new passenger airport terminal during a private ceremony last week, officials said in a press release Thursday.
Some airlines have already added flights that will arrive and depart from the $13.9 million terminal, the release said.
“Great things happen when there’s a great vision from an aligned city council, aligned mayors in the region and they get behind a great leader like Airport Director Dr. Robin Sobotta,” Willmeng CEO James Murphy said in the release.
The terminal design involved a large facility with a Douglas Fir timber ceiling, but officials reinforced that the elegant terminal was not the only improvement made to the airport.
A portion of the renovations included an overhaul of hangars, roads and taxis, as well as other portions of the airport.
The designers not only overhauled the outdated portions of the airport, but they also included foundational elements for terminal expansion.
“This is a proud community accomplishment and a regional asset for Yavapai County,” Prescott Mayor Greg Mengarelli said in the release.
“This regional asset will be utilized by more than just Prescott residents. This is a city-owned airport, but we don’t really see it that way, we see this as regional cooperation. This is everyone’s regional airport.”
