Cincinnati / Northern Kentucky International Airport (CVG) in the US has begun construction work to upgrade and renovate its airport terminal and concourses.

The refurbishment, which will be carried out throughout the rest of this year and early 2018, is part of the airport’s $6m terminal modernisation project.

CVG CEO Candace McGraw said: “As CVG embraces what’s next, this terminal modernisation project delivers on our mission to provide an unforgettably positive experience for our passengers.

“We’re building on the sense of place currently in our terminal and concourses, for passengers to feel welcomed home or welcomed to our region, by incorporating regional branding elements inspired by the Roebling Bridge and Ohio River into the design.”

As part of the project, the airport will be upgraded with a floor-to-ceiling makeover in the baggage claim area, which will feature additional energy-efficient lighting, new carpet and wall treatments.

"This terminal modernisation project delivers on our mission to provide an unforgettably positive experience for our passengers."

In addition, the ground transportation centre of the airport will be refurbished, while a new carpet will be laid in the walking tunnel connecting the terminal and concourses.

Slated to be completed by mid-2018, the renovation project will be executed in six phases in order to minimise disruption for passengers.

During its upcoming phases, the curb front will be fitted with additional lighting and signage to help passengers travel through the airport.

In addition, several upgrades will be made to parking vestibules and the garage tunnel.
