Brookley Terminal 1 in sight

MOBILE, Ala. – The Mobile Airport Authority Thursday gave conditional approval to two contracts for development of a terminal at the Mobile Aeroplex at Brookley. What is being called “Terminal 1” would be used by low-cost carrier ViaAir and cost roughly $7 million - $5 million for the building and parking and the rest for FAA-required fencing and security. It would bring commercial passenger service to the complex near downtown Mobile in six months. The carrier plans to use Mobile Regional Airport, but wants to shift service to the downtown airport. It’s the first step towards what might eventually be the wholesale movement of passenger service from the Regional Airport to the downtown airport. The MAA chose remodeling an existing building now used by Airbus over building a temporary structure. (Source:, 11/08/18) Previous
