The Aviation Department’s mission is to provide outstanding airport services in a safe and cost-effective manner for the benefit of citizens, visitors, airlines, and customers. This Midwest Aviation Department owns and operates both International and Downtown airports, is supported wholly by airport user charges, and currently employs more than 400.
It is an exciting time as the Aviation Department is investing $1.5 billion for a New Single Terminal and Parking Garage. The total estimated building area for the terminal is 1,094,000 square feet (SF), with two (2) levels of the terminal split between arrival and departure operations. The modern, single-terminal will debut in early 2023 and includes 39 gates with a capacity for up to 50 gates, updated amenities and dining options, and efficient security. In preparation for the new terminal project, a best-of-breed Enterprise Asset Management (EAM) system and program were needed. Maximo and EDI were selected to lay the foundation for that program.
