South Jersey Transportation Authority is expected to complete Atlantic City International Airport’s $25m expansion project in May 2012.

The 75,000ft2 expansion includes a federal inspection station for international flights, three passenger boarding bridges and a larger baggage-claim area.

When it opens, the inspection station will add international flights, which makes the local airport more attractive to passengers.

Hunter Roberts Construction Group of Philadelphia is the general contractor for the project.

The airport reported use by 1.4 million total passengers during 2010 and posted 1.2 million total passengers during October 2010, a decline of 1.1% from the same period in 2010.

Recently, Atlantic City Airport has broken ground on the $14.3m new airport rescue and fire fighting facility.

The facility, which spans 40,700ft2 in area, will replace the existing old station, which has been leased from the FAA Technical Center, and is expected house rescue and firefighting equipment at the airport.

The airport rescue and fire fighting facility’s design and plans will follow the specifications governed by FAA design guidelines.

Maintenance and storage components of the facility will include a shop, firefighting equipment and chemicals and storage rooms.

The South Jersey Transportation Authority executive director Bart Mueller said staff had been working in an outdated facility that is far too small to handle the number of emergency vehicles operated by the fire department.

"With the new center, we will have the technological advances, new equipment necessary to respond to high-level threats," Mueller said.
