A ribbon cutting ceremony celebrating the completion of Phase I of the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport has been scheduled to be held on Tuesday, February 26.

Birmingham Mayor William A. Bell, Sr. will join the Birmingham Airport Authority President/CEO and Board of Directors for the event that will begin at 4:00 p.m.

The new 285,000-squre-foot addition is part of the Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport Terminal Modernization Project, and it is the larger phase of the two-phase project. The designers' and developers' goal for the expansion is to improve safety and efficiency while having a modernized appearance. 

The total cost of the project is estimated at $201 million, and it will include a new centralized security checkpoint that allows easy access between concourses and new concessions. The food concessions program, managed by HMS Host, will include Chick-fil-a, Good People's Brewing Co., Great American Bagel, Jim ‘N Nick's and Starbucks. Other concessions in Phase I include three Hudson Newsstands and a shoeshine stand.

"Passenger feedback was a driving force for the fresh and expanded concession offerings," Al Denson, President and CEO, Birmingham Airport Authority, said in a October 2012 release. "We believe we have a program that the community can be proud of and passengers can be excited about."

It is the most significant modernization at BHM since it was built in 1931.
