Steel Beam Set for Mobile International Airport Terminal and Parking Garage

The first structural steel beam has been set at Mobile International Airport (BFM) for its Terminal and Parking Garage Project.

The new terminal and parking garage are scheduled to open in November 2025. All commercial air services will then move from Mobile Regional Airport (MOB) to Mobile International Airport, which is located minutes from downtown Mobile and Baldwin County in Alabama.

Chris Curry, Mobile Airport Authority President said:

“This milestone marks a critical phase of construction, as vertical development makes the project visibly progress. Seeing the structure rise from the ground is a promising sign for our community that this project is really moving forward.”

Construction on this project began 18 months ago. Since then, required utility work has been completed, tenants have been relocated and a creek has been enclosed on-site.

Once complete, the terminal will feature five gates, four of which will be for domestic travel, while one will be an international swing gate. The design will also enable this capacity to increase to 12 gates in line with demand.

What’s more, the existing low-cost terminal at Mobile International Airport will continue to operate with two gates.

The new parking garage will provide 1,250 spaces to serve the new terminal.

Curry added:

“This project is transformational not only for Mobile but for Baldwin County as well. It will allow us to relocate commercial service and take advantage of our local infrastructure—highways, rail, the port, and waterways. This will make travel more convenient for the entire region’s customer base.

“Another important element about this terminal is its international capability, including a Federal Inspection Service (FIS) that will enable us to process both passengers and cargo—vital components of our business. Ultimately, where we see ourselves in another couple of years is to be able to link this terminal with the port of Mobile, enhancing our multi-modal system in Mobile.”
