The Kansas City Aviation Department now estimates that bare-bones improvements at Kansas City International Airport would cost between $365 million and $460 million, much lower than the estimated range announced in September, between $645 million and $785 million.

An Aviation Department executive told the Mayor’s KCI Advisory Board that the new estimate does not include the addition of parking spaces and further rehabilitation of garages. Improvements included in the estimate also don’t address such passenger-service issues as a lack of restaurants and restrooms in the airport’s secure areas.

The Aviation Department and airlines have agreed to work together on plans for a major rehabilitation of the airport or construction of a new terminal, which would cost an estimated $1.2 billion.
