Kentucky Government Officials Announce New Terminal Construction at Paducah Airport

There will soon be a new terminal at Barkley Regional Airport in Paducah.  State government officials say that the state’s department of aviation has committed $5 million to the project. The award is from the Kentucky Department of Aviation and an additional $20 million in Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) funding will be put towards the project to construct a 30,000 square foot terminal. The project will accommodate today’s facilities along with ADA compliant restrooms and security improvements. Officials said the project will also provide bigger parking lots, a new entrance road to the facility and a new terminal apron. Officials also said the project will bring new business opportunities to the area and make the process easier to enter and exit the region for residents. The Barkley Regional Airport is one of half a dozen commercial airports in the state. The airport currently provides twice-daily service to Chicago O’Hare on United Express Airlines that is currently operated by Sky West Airlines.
