Barnstable Airport Drawing, August 11, 2010 The MassDOT Board of Directors this week approved a $13.1 million grant for construction of the new terminal building at Barnstable Municipal Airport. 

The current terminal building was constructed in the 1950's and does not meet current accessibility and building code requirements and is limited in meeting security screening requirements.  Barnstable Municipal Airport is the 3rd busiest in the Commonwealth, with approximately 130,000 passengers last year.   Barnstable Municipal Airport plays a critical role in tourism and is an important economic engine for the Cape and Islands. 

The new 35,000 square foot terminal building will significantly improve the the traveling public's experience at Barnstable Municipal Airport and enhance economic development opportunities on the Cape.  Learn more about MassDOT Aeronautics here.
