PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. - The Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport reached another milestone on July 28 when at an Airport Authority Board meeting officials announced the facility's master plan update is complete. The 20-year roadmap, which is revamped every five to seven years, includes various renovations and expansions, plans that come as the airport has seen rapid tourism growth this year. The plan awaits final approval from the Federal Aviation Administration and Florida Department of Transportation. The airport aims to tackle first renovations to its baggage-claim system and expansions of both customer and aircraft parking lots. Designs for all were approved during Wednesday's meeting.
