GSP Master Plan approved

GREER, S.C.— The Greenville-Spartanburg Airport Commission unanimously approved an update to the master plan for Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport (GSP) during its meeting on Monday, Nov. 19.

The GSP Master Plan, which recommends $456.1 million in projects over the next 20 years, will become the airport’s official planning document with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The costs are based on 2018 dollars. The plan includes recommendations for runway rehabilitation, building a third parking garage and a second phase for the airport’s air cargo facility that’s under construction.

“The master plan is a tool to guide development at GSP,” said Dave Edwards, GSP’s president and CEO. “It assists us in accommodating expected growth, passenger demands and ensures that we are complying with the FAA’s design and safety standards.”

The master plan includes an overview of existing facilities at GSP, forecasted aviation activity, facility requirements, environmental considerations, development alternatives, development phasing, estimated costs and financial feasibility analyses.

The update for GSP’s master plan was an 18-month process.

A public workshop will be held Thursday, Nov. 29 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the GSP Conference Center that’s located in the airport’s terminal building. It is intended to be an interactive opportunity for people to view the master plan while learning about potential development at the airport. Representatives from McFarland Johnson, an airport master plan consultant, and GSP will discuss the effort and the findings of the report.
