Burlington International Airport (BTV) in Vermont, US, is set to soon open its $19m Terminal Integration Project in the US.

The new project will comprise a four-lane security checkpoint.

It will also feature advanced computed tomography (CT) scanners to facilitate a reduction in security wait times and create a more streamlined screening experience for passengers.

In addition to a single security checkpoint, the project will increase passenger seating and add new and improved amenities at the airport, Vermont Business Magazine reported.

The checkpoint located on the south side of the terminal will be opened to the public from 11 October 2022.

Burlington Mayor Miro Weinberger was quoted by Vermont Business Magazine as saying: “Our vision is to maintain the Burlington International Airport as an essential public resource and a best-in-class facility for generations to come.

“The opening of the Terminal Integration Projection represents a dramatic step forward in our planned expansions and improvements at Burlington International Airport and supports our work to continuously improve travel, strengthen safety, lower emissions, and maintain a welcoming and comfortable space for Burlingtonians and visitors alike at the airport.”

The project was funded via an Airport Improvement Grant (AIP), which was administered by the Federal Aviation Administration.

In addition to the advanced baggage screening technology, the terminal has been equipped with LED lighting.

The terminal also has an array of solar panels on the rooftop to power the building, as well as a battery-powered generator.

Burlington International Airport Aviation director Nic Longo said: “We are grateful to our federal partners, especially Senator Leahy, for allowing this project to come to fruition.

“This phase of construction’s completion is the beginning of a terminal redesign, which will improve the BTV experience for our local community and the dedicated and hardworking BTV employees.

“I am pleased to welcome travellers to an elevated travel experience at BTV and look forward to continuing to make BTV the greenest and most efficient airport in the country.”
