John Wayne Airport officials on Wednesday announced a new Web page for updates on the $512 million in upgrades and expansion planned for the airport over the next five years. The expansion is allowed by the settlement agreement between the airport, the city of Newport Beach and other parties.
The work will include adding a new terminal with six gates and 2,500 more parking spaces. It will be financed largely by a $4.50 fee passengers are charged when they fly out of John Wayne Airport.
The Web page, at http://www.ocair.com/improvements, will explain the schedule of improvements, the financing plan and other aspects of the project.
