Downtown airport update

MOBILE, Ala. - The new downtown Mobile airport is just a few weeks away from opening, and FOX10 got a look inside. The new terminal is being built on Michigan Avenue in the Mobile Aeroplex. Chris Curry, president of the Mobile Airport Authority, said there will be five ticket counters. He said the facility costs about $6 million and is 22,000 square feet, but there are plans to expand at the end of summer. The first flight, a Frontier flight, is scheduled to fly out May first.
