Great news for those traveling from the Auburn - Opelika area by plane.  Plans have started to make dramatic improvements to the Auburn - Opelika Robert G. Pitts airport.

The terminal was built in 1950, and is  currently experiencing peeling paint and chronic leaks.

"We've got great use out of it, but it's too small and doesn't have the amenities we need to take care of pilots and passengers," Hutto said.

Along with a new terminal, new taxiways and a new airplane parking area, called a ramp, are planned. The ramp will allow planes to maneuver under their own power instead of being pulled to taxiways.
Four additional hangers will also be built at the new site.

Fuel sales have increased by 50 percent since 2002, and the airport has 29-seat jets landing on its runway, Hutto said.

The new location will help economic development by improving air traffic efficiency and travelers' first impressions of the city, Hutto said.

"It will be something we can be proud of," he said. "... It is about being able to serve our community."
