Present and future Airport developments:
Missoula Airport experiences growing pains as parking spaces get filled up quickly, and early morning flyers have to put up with long lines. Consequently plans are in place to add 8 more airline gates and expanding the apron. Also under consideration is a new terminal. The project is tentatively scheduled for completion by 2021.
