The $160 million project, dubbed as Air Capital Terminal 3 or ACT 3, will be the third terminal built in Wichita and will replace the existing Mid-Continent terminal built in 1954.
Designed by Kansas City-based HNTB Architecture, the new terminal will feature interior designs that showcase the city’s rich aviation history, and is expected to enhance Wichita’s standing as the Air Capital of the World.
The new terminal will feature more space for ticketing and baggage claim on the roadway entry level than the existing terminal along with departure lounges, concessions and expanded passenger security screening to meet TSA’s latest and potential future standards. There will be 12 boarding gates in the base bid package, each equipped with a passenger boarding bridge with pre-conditioned air and ground power for aircraft. The facility is designed to serve 16 planes from the base building with loading bridges.
Stairs and elevators close to the main ticket lifts will offer easy access to the ramp for ground boarding operations. There will also be outbound passenger baggage handling systems with inline explosives detection security screening, and centralised outbound baggage make-up room with two large slope plate make-up devices.
