GPT Terminal Layout

6 posts in this topic

Do any of you by any chance have a layout of how the new terminal will be at GPT? The website doesn't offer it, and I was wondering if it would be different from the dinky one now where you simply go up an escalator and there are five gates. I'd love to see the main area and maybe two wings with an A and B concourse, but I don't think the market is large enough for this quite yet.

I have not yet found a plan of the new terminal, but it will be expanded from 92,000 sq. ft. to over 165,000 sq. feet. The website suggests that there will be space for two additional airlines. Here is the link...

For the two new airlines began service to GPT, I think the following will happen:

A. United or US Airways will start Express service (I feel United is more likely due to the fact that it doesn't serve Mobile already).

B. Pan Am Clipper (which now flies to Tunica) will begin service due to the fact that there has been word that they want to expand.

C. A few more mainline flights will begin from Delta, Northwest (which is pure RJ to Memphis right now), and Continental.

Once hotel rooms start to come back on line, there will be an increased demand for flights. The Beau Rivage and its 1780 rooms should be open in August. Others are scheduled to follow soon after. The inventory of rooms will still take a few years to recover, but there will be many more of them than before Katrina in just a few years' time.

Flights by AirTran are to be restored to 114% of the pre-Katrina levels. This is a very good sign of confidence in the market.
