The newly renovated passenger terminal at Gainesville Regional Airport - with solar panels on its roof and three airline gates - is located on NE 39th Av. - about three quarter of a mile east of Waldo Road intersection.
It includes the enclosure of the 4,400 square-foot former exterior courtyard into passenger waiting space with a large skylight to bring in natural light. High-tech glass has been used to allow more natural light while blocking the sun’s heat. Solar panels are efficiently heating & cooling the terminal. The enclosed atrium allows more seating in the gate area to accommodate additional passengers when multiple flights are departing.
Some of the most visible improvements include a new central space for concessions, changes to the passenger screening space and meet and greet area to improve flow, new signage, restrooms and new furniture to complete the look. The baggage carousel area now has a high-tech screen advising passengers of area resources.
