An artist’s rendering shows the planned improvements at Little Rock’s Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport/Adams Field, a $450 million project that would reconfigure the passenger terminal and replace aging facilities.

A reconfigured passenger terminal at Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport/Adams Field that includes an arrival hall is the centerpiece of $450 million in capital improvements that officials at the state's largest airport envision building over the next 20 years.

World-class cities have airports to match. Glad to see that folks are working to raise the bar at LIT.

This makes a lot of sense and would provide more even flow through the airport. As it is today, it's sometimes gets congested with an arrivals hall that winds around to different roads. To accommodate the congestion, parking spaces alongside the parking deck had to be put in place where many passengers cannot find their parties. It's a long way off though, so things could change.

And while you're at it, get the Clinton name off of Adams Field. It is a black eye on Arkansas!

It would be nice before spending that kind of money, to get one or more airlines to use Little Rock as a hub city. As it stands now, many cities are a hassle to get to without making one or more changes. If anyone has noticed, you almost can't get to the North East with Southwest any more since they discontinued service to Baltimore!

So does this mean it’s going to be an international airport? It needs to be because you can’t get anywhere from Little Rock! Flights are over priced! Otherwise why re-do anything unless your going to make it international. Making it look pretty won’t help if you can’t get anywhere!

Sigh, ours will be one of those airports that is constantly under construction. Have to plan for the future, though.

I'm with Jimbob - Get the name of those two crooks off the thing and put the HONORABLE name of Adams back! Call it Adams International if you want, but I have always refused to call it the name of those two monsters. I will never call it that demonic name!

RBear, more like people who know how to do their own thinking and not drink the kool-aid such as yourself.

So the last firm to study and forecast traffic missed the mark by 18 years, actually probably more? An international arrivals / customs area? What in the world suggests that LIT would ever support international flights? The airport can't even support a direct flight to NYC.

If they're going to keep the HillBilly name they need a Monica cigar shop, Paula hotel and a Gennifer lounge.
