Recently, the airport completed $8.5 million in renovations and additions that added a staffed guest services desk, second baggage carousel, fifth rental car desk and reconfigured office space behind ticket counters. The project included additional security equipment designed to detect traces of explosives in luggage and make luggage searches and other security work flow more smoothly.
Within the past year, the airport also finished an $8 million rental car facility and added boarding ramps to keep passengers using ground-level gates out of the weather for $1.3 million.
The projects are part of the airport's longstanding efforts to make flying through Asheville Regional more attractive. Convenience is the airport's main selling point, although airport statistics say it has generally become more competitive on price with competing airports in the last 12 months.
Staff at the guest services desk provide travel information, arrange transportation to or from the airport and perform other services like selling stamps or shipping packages. It is staffed from 8:30 a.m. until the last flight arrives at night.
