Beginning early 2020, the Texarkana Regional Airport is scheduled to commence construction on a new terminal that should be completed by spring 2024.

Anticipated advantages of the new terminal include modernized safety and security, airport access from I-49 and a Jet-Way that will allow passengers to be free from the elements while boarding

Mike Mellinger, Airport Director at Texarkana Regional Airport, says this is thanks to a grant from the Airport Improvement Program sponsored by the Federal Aviation Administration.
