MBS International Airport in the US state of Michigan will launch a $20.4m construction project to build a new passenger airline terminal in an effort to increase its passenger capacity.

Airport manager Jeff Nagel said that work on the latest phase to build the new 75,000ft² terminal at a total cost of $48m will begin by October.

Construction will take 14 months to complete and the terminal will open in 2013, according to mlive.com.

So far, workers have installed a concrete foundation, erected the building's steel frame and built a taxiway to the site of the new terminal.

The Federal Aviation Administration has contributed $35m to the project.
