The contractor has reworked the schedule to reduce the runway closures. While the project will begin on April 29th, runway closures are estimated to begin 3 weeks later. Runway 10/28 will remain on a nightly closure schedule and runway 4/22 will be closed for the entire week runway closures are estimated to last. If you have questions please call Airport OPS.
Next Phase of Reconstruction
Phase 2 will be completed by the 25th of March and the contractor will immediately move to Phase 3 on the 25th. This phase is projected to take 60 days without difficulties or weather delays. Please contact Avion regarding any aircraft movement and/or storage. The XCOR Hangar is not available for use.
Executive Hangar Phase 2 area 1 is complete. Hangars A-D are accessible by aircraft. We haven’t received a start date on the next section.
Both projects are progressing, but due to the rain we are not being given completion dates. As soon as the contractors and engineers have any information on completion we will pass it on. Thank you for your patience.
Jones Brothers has advised us they plan on paving on Saturday (1/5) and Sunday (1/6) in that area.
Executive Hangars A-D
We have been told by Jones Brothers they are progressing on schedule for this area.

The current work areas have almost been completed. The asphalt is scheduled to be completed this week and the next phase shown below will begin immediately after the current phase has been completed.
We were up 16.2% on enplanements in the month of August over August last year. With a reduction of 1.7% in the amount of seats available.
In September we were down .9% over September last year. That is great considering we lost the Albuquerque flight and Southwest saw a 5.8% reduction.
The airlines are reducing flights to fill the aircraft we have here. Please book your trips early. The more early bookings the easier it is for the airlines to justify extra aircraft and flights.
We are projected to surpass Lubbock this year in enplanements. In the calendar year we are projecting a number around 500,000 people.
The new ramp construction is set to begin tomorrow. Jones Brothers has 60 days to finish Phase 1. The entire project should be completed in 225 days.
