EL PASO - Work will begin in June on El Paso International Airport’s new $45 million car rental facility, part of a $139 million airport facelift. The three-story, 18-acre facility will house the airport’s rental car operations in one location.

In any given year, about 16 percent of the passengers who arrive at El Paso International Airport will rent a car. About 1.3 million passengers arrived at the airport last year, meaning that more than 200,000 people rented a car.

The facility is expected to open in about two years.

Plans for the new facility call for 792 parking spaces. It will also have a fueling station, maintenance facility and car wash.

The airport’s five-year, $139 million capital improvement plan, launched last September, uses no city funds. Besides constructing the rental car facility, the improvement plan is reconstructing runways and taxiways and replacing passenger-loading bridges.
