Build KCI - Future Animation

Future KCI


Passenger experience

Travelers will be impressed by the wide-open spaces the moment they enter the terminal. Light and airy with a Kansas City feel, including our signature fountains, the KCI single terminal will be a very different journey than before.

The new garage will be adjacent to the terminal with plenty of close-in, covered parking. There will now be two levels, one for departures and one for arrivals with clear wayfinding and sightlines. Two moving walkways will expedite transfers between the two concourses to make navigating the airport a better experience and consolidated and flexible security checkpoints with multiple lanes will accommodate the ups and downs of passenger volume.


The new KCI single terminal will feature the kinds of options and amenities travelers have come to expect in large metropolitan airports. KCI will transform from a drop-off airport into a destination worth exploring. Among the many improvements are:

  • Central customer service helpdesks
  • Airfield views
  • Inclusive play areas
  • Nursing mothers rooms
  • Service animal relief area
  • Military USO
  • Gracious crowd circulation
  • Art installation opportunities
  • Flexibility for future changes
  • Dedicated commercial curb space for taxis, rideshares, city transit and shuttles
