Concord seeks aid for airport terminal

The city of Concord and state officials are teaming up to win a multimillion-dollar federal grant to rebuild Concord Airport’s aging terminal.

The idea is to make the airport a more suitable visual gateway to the state and position Concord to capture the small-plane traffic being squeezed out of Manchester’s growing airport, officials told the Concord Monitor.

The new terminal could be a 20,000-square-foot facility with four to five times the space of the current building, offering modern services, amenities and concessions — everything from upgraded security to an on-site fire department base to an in-house restaurant, said Tom Aspell, assistant city manager.
