Better Baggage Claim


A $2.4 million baggage claim carousel replacement project is underway at Augusta Regional Airport.

The project includes replacing and upgrading the existing baggage claim carousel system, replacing outbound baggage conveyors, adding a new oversize bag slide, constructing two new baggage service offices and additional cosmetic upgrades such as terrazzo flooring, fresh paint schemes and access improvements.

This project, which is being funded by a combination of federal airport improvement program grants and airport passenger facility charges, is expected to be finished this fall.

“As we plan for growth and focus on airport improvements, this project epitomizes our commitment to enhance the airport passenger experience,” says Herbert L. Judon Jr., airport executive director. “Once completed, the Augusta Regional Airport will have state-of-the-art baggage conveyance systems that will significantly improve efficiencies.”
