A $23.5 million expansion is completed and now open at McAllen-Miller International Airport.
The city’s aviation director Elizabeth Suarez said the new space opened just in time for holiday travel.
Suarez said, “We’ve got the expanded restaurant area and newsstand area, an expanded waiting area and 40,000 additional square feet that we added.”
There are still a few portions of the project under construction.
Suarez said the airport handles about 60 percent of commercial traffic in and out from the Rio Grande Valley.
