Today the Regina Airport Authority (RAA) team shared their plans for the phase 1 post security hold room renovation.
According to James Bogusz, President and CEO, the focus of the renovations is to convert second floor pre-security food and beverage and retail outlets to post-security, provide additional seating in the passenger waiting area and create a new play area for children.
“In addition to increasing the food and beverage options post security, we will be streamlining our passenger screening area,” said Bogusz. “This will include new signage and more intuitive entrances that better define both the passenger and priority screening lanes.”
The phase 1 renovations were approved by the RAA board of directors with an investment of approximately one million dollars. The project, which is being funded by the airport improvement fee, is scheduled to be completed prior to Christmas.
“Post-security services are one of the most important aspects of a passenger’s experience at an airport,” said Bogusz. “After the renovations are completed, we look forward to our guests arriving early and enjoying the new food and space options.”
