Resolution No. - Authorizing a Supplemental Agreement No. 1 with C&S Companies for Passenger Boarding Bridge - Gate 3 - Design & Bidding Services at the Ithaca Tompkins Regional Airport (ID #7353)

              Mr. Hall said this resolution is for design services for Gate 3.  He spoke of the option of bolting the jet bridge to the terminal which would accommodate the need currently but also could be changed in the future if there is a grant award by the Governor’s Office or if there is a need to make other renovations.

 

              Mr. Hall spoke of developing a "Plan B" regarding the need for a terminal upgrade if there is no award of the last $40 million of the New York State Redesign Competitive Grant funding.  The Airport has three airlines providing jet service and two of those three airlines are flying jets in that do not have stairs; there is a need for a total of three jet bridges.  He spoke of the Appleton Airport and its single level facility design.  He explained how that design could be a better option for the Airport which could reduce the overall expense of a two-floor facility while still improving the overall passenger experience.
