RSW Airport Expansion

RSW AIRPORT EXPANSION

In our previous Pulse post, Southwest Florida International Airport, RSW, Bounces Back with Passenger Increase, we touched on Fort Myers International Airport RSW’s recorded breaking passenger intake, and not just compared to last year during covid, it surpassed travel pre-covid! As you might recall the July 2021 passenger influx was a 218% increase compared to July 2020 and 42% increase compared to July 2019. RSW has maintained their number one spot in the nation for airport passenger recovery following the start of the Coivd-19 pandemic in March 2020. Given all that growth and factoring in the overall growth of Southwest Florida it is no surprise that RSW has just been approved for a three-year long $331- million project.

This project is being fully financed through grants from the Florida Department of Transportation, Passenger Facility Charges (PFCs), airport revenue bonds, and Lee County Port Authority construction funds. It should be noted that property taxes are not being used for airport construction. The funding will be going towards expanding concession space, consolidating and streamlining the security checkpoints, as well as increasing passenger amenities for a more pleasurable and efficient experience.
