Bangor International has one passenger terminal.
Current and future Airport developments: The $8M Terminal Upgrade Project started early 2014 with renovation of the terminal's first level - to speed up check-in & baggage security process. Work will be done in phases and only certain parts of level 1 will be closed off at times. This involves relocation of ticket counters to be near the current main terminal entrance & opening more queuing space, adding windows at front for more natural light, replacing light fixures & flooring, & adding wood finish for a 'Maine feel'. TSA's baggage screening will move behind the wall and a conveyor belt takes bags from ticket counters to the in-line screening process. Returning passengers will then take a right to baggage claim & rental car counters, and then exit at the south end of the terminal - preventing passengers coming/going from criss-crossing.
Other important Airport projects to be done in the next 2 years are also ongoing.
