Des Moines DSM Airport Overview
DSM Airport is only six miles south of downtown Des Moines -at the crossroads of Interstate Hwys I-80 (ease-west), and I-35 (north-south) and near Hwy 235. .
With 2 million passengers annually, Des Moines Airport is served by U.S. airlines, offering direct domestic flights with connections to all points of the globe.
NOTICE: Allow for extra time (two hours are recommended) to arrive at the Airport - particularly during morning rush hours.
Des Moines International Airport has one passenger terminal.
To have or not to have a new passenger terminal:
As of early March 2016, a number of consultants urged airport officials to build near or at the current terminal, and to provide for a total of 14 airline gates - located at the at the Airfield's east side - a less expensive alternative to previous west side proposal with a $400,000 estimate.
April 2016: The current plan provides for additional gates & larger planes (possibly resulting in eliminating some regional jets). Also in April, the contract for new plan was signed, which weighs flexibility, and saves $100M. It is hoped that within a year, design, & building on the project may start.
