SAN ANGELO - San Angelo’s Regional Airport is expanding and getting a face-lift. The $5.9 million project has three phases and is expected to be largely complete by spring 2014.

The renovations are meant to improve Mathis Field's aesthetics and create more space for passenger flow and, hopefully, an additional carrier.

"Phase 1 of the airport renovation — which includes the lobby’s passenger meet-and-greet area and work spaces for Transportation Security Administration, airline and airport staff — is 90 percent complete," said Luis Elguezabal, airport director.

Phase 2 is 50 percent complete and is projected for completion in November. It includes expansion of the rental car and baggage claim area as well as exterior work to the building and the parking lots near the northern portion.

The third and final phase will involve opening space south of the baggage claim area, the restroom and café spaces and exterior work to the south portion of the building and parking lots.

City officials have met with executives from Utah-based SkyWest Airlines to discuss adding two daily flights to Houston.

With an additional airline servicing Houston, airport staff have a goal of 125,000 enplanements annually.
