Port Columbus opens new south runway

Port Columbus International Airport (CMH) will inaugurate its new south runway this week.

Michael Huerta, administrator of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), will speak at the runway’s commissioning on August 22.


The FAA funded almost 63% of the $140m project, which was finished on schedule and under original budget, according to the airport.

Port Columbus has several major projects underway to cater for long-term growth.

A three-year $80m programme is overhauling the gateway’s 55-year-old terminal, ensuring it functions for at least 20 more years.

The former south runway, which includes sections of pavement from 1928, will be converted to a taxiway after the new runway opens.
