An advisory board recommends that Kansas City build a new single terminal to replace the existing three-terminal Kansas City International Airport. Nineteen of the 24 members voted for the $1.2 billion plan, which was what the Kansas City Aviation Department initially proposed one year ago.

The group considered three other options: expand and repurpose existing terminals; build a new central terminal and repurpose the others; or rehabilitate the existing facility. The Aviation Department and a number of business-aligned groups pressed for a single-terminal design that not only would offer more efficient operation, but present a better image to people visiting the city.

However, a number of area residents argued loudly against a single-terminal plan, citing the high cost and the loss of a design that allows travelers to go from the curb to the airline gate in a few steps.
