New Heights: A Look Ahead at Daytona Beach International Airport’s Multi-Million Dollar Renovation

It has been an exciting year so far for the Daytona Beach International Airport—with Silver Airways already getting passengers to and from Fort Lauderdale, Sunwing servicing Toronto trips, and American Airlines taking flight to New York this May.

Now, the Volusia County Council has approved another big change for the airport, a multi-million dollar renovation project by A.M. Weigel Construction, Inc.

Earlier this April, the council approved a contract with the local company that set the maximum project price at $12.9 million. What will the renovation project include? Just read on to learn more about the details, and other exciting developments afoot at Daytona Beach International Airport.

Style and function take flight

As part of the main terminal’s major makeover, travelers will soon see new features such as…

  • Electronic signage
  • Updated seating with charging stations (one of many nods to the needs of modern travelers)
  • New flooring
  • Water fountains for bottle-filling
  • New ticket counters
  • Mothers’ room
  • Complimentary business center
  • New IT infrastructure that allows for more seamless integration of new airlines
  • A Coastal Ecology theme

Airport traffic reaches new heights

A go-ahead on airport refurbishments is not the only exciting news to come out the Daytona Beach International Airport this month—the airport announced that it saw a 3.2 percent increase in traffic from March 2018 to March 2019.
