Trenton-Mercer Airport Receives FAA Approval for New Terminal

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has given Mercer County approval to move forward with the design and construction of a new passenger terminal at Trenton-Mercer Airport, New Jersey.

This approval has been granted after the agency issued a Finding of No Significant Impacts and Record of Decision (FONSI/ROD) for the proposed new passenger terminal’s environmental assessment.

County Executive Brian M. Hughes, said:

“This is great news for Trenton-Mercer Airport and the many thousands of travelers who pass through our passenger facility. We appreciate the FAA’s diligence in its review of the Environmental Assessment for the proposed new airport terminal, and we’re pleased that we have the go-ahead to advance this important project.”

The new terminal will replace Trenton-Mercer Airport’s current ageing terminal, built in the 1970s. The new four-aircraft-gate terminal would be located adjacent to the existing terminal.

This modern terminal would better accommodate current airport users and meet the airport’s forecasted demands for 2035. All aspects of airport functions will be included, such as baggage handling, Transportation Security Administration checkpoint and baggage screening, airline operations and improved customer comforts such as concessions, waiting areas, and restrooms.

Hughes said:

“The existing terminal at Trenton-Mercer Airport is about one-third the size it should be for the number of travelers currently using it. As we emerge from the coronavirus crisis, we expect an increasing demand for leisure travel, and nationwide and at Trenton-Mercer, we are seeing airlines adding new flights and reviving old ones.”

The airport currently has no plan or proposal for new or longer runways, and the airport’s area would not increase.
