(KEY WEST, FLA) — Ground was broken earlier this month to begin the $100-million expansion to Key West International Airport.

Director of Airports Richard Strickland says the Concourse A terminal expansion is projected to take approximately 2.5 years. The project is designed to heighten the airport’s level of service and operational flexibility.

The new second-level concourse will be 50,000 square feet including an extensive contemporary departure area, additional baggage areas and an upgraded security checkpoint that supports up to four security lanes.

Also, seven new passenger boarding jet bridges will provide all-weather access from the terminal to the aircraft. And an extended passenger bridge will connect the existing terminal building with the new concourse.

Currently, six carriers — Allegiant, American, Delta, Jet Blue, Silver and United — serve Key West International Airport with daily nonstop flights.

The expansion is targeted for completion by early summer 2025.
