Terminal Area Plan

Help shape the future of our airport!

Project Purpose


To develop a terminal area plan (TAP) for the Ketchikan International Airport that accommodates current needs, anticipated growth, and enhances the passenger experience.


The existing terminal area facilities and design do not meet current and projected needs.


The TAP will offer short, medium and long-term recommendations for addressing current needs and projected growth.
