The Greater Binghamton Airport county-owned public-use airport in Broome County, New York, is set to start a project to implement a range of upgrades.

The upgrades include new charging stations for smart phones, tablets, and laptops, and a redesign of the screening checkpoint.

Other improvements include new seats with outlets, new trash cans and recycling containers, and new floors and carpets.

"These renovations are not only necessary, but will help improve the look of the airport."

The project will also upgrade the current flight information display system, following which, the screens will display the weather in the local area, and also the weather in the destination points.

Broome County executive Debbie Preston said: "These renovations are not only necessary, but will help improve the look of the airport, giving the thousands of people visiting the community a better first impression of our county."

Of the total $750,000 required to implement the upgrades, $495,000 will come from state grant money, while the airport is covering the remainder.
