Airport Modernization Project

We're excited for the new look and feel of the airport as we move forward with projects to make it a new, exciting space for travelerscoming in and out of Waco!

This nearly $8.8 million project includes nearly $8.3 million in Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) funds.

Due to the updates being made at the Waco Regional Airport, the TSA screening area will temporarily be relocated. Look for signage to direct you to the temporary screening area. This phase of construction will continue through the end of the year. Thank you for your patience & please pardon our dust as we work to improve the Waco Regional Airport!
