Rapid City, SD – According to the statement, re-upping of the airport is something that occurs every 20 years to identify how the airport can accommodate an expanding community.
The Executive Director of Rapid City Regional, Patrick Dame, said:
”Even though we’re in a lull right now with lower passengers, we anticipate that we’ll start to recover through this next year, and we could be into record years in the not-so-distant future.”
He also mentioned that a new master plan had to be drafted because the area was already outgrowing the initial plan from a couple of years ago.
An expanded terminal and the possibility of an on-site hotel are included in the new plan.
