Present and future Airport developments:  Due to a steady passenger increase during the past three years - AIA competed in a state-run grant program in 2016 - hoping for a $40M grant - intended for upgrades to the aging terminal (escalators, restrooms, food court), & add a 4-level parking garage. It seems they were unsuccessful.  However, back in August 2016, AIA received a $3M Federal grant to replace the old boarding bridges of the terminal.  Other than flight information, no real news have been added.
