Redmond Municipal Airport Begins Terminal Aircraft Parking Apron Expansion Project. April 2019 – Airport Services to Operate Without Interruption

Redmond Municipal Airport (RDM) announces that groundbreaking has commenced for the expansion of the commercial service aircraft parking apron. To meet the growth demands of the Airport and help attract future destinations for the traveling public, this project will add additional aircraft parking spaces as well as allow for larger mainline aircraft to park and utilize the terminal facility.

Project construction started on April 8, 2019 and is anticipated to be completed by Mid-October of 2019. The terminal and both airport runways will remain open during the majority of the construction project, allowing commercial air service to operate.

This expansion project ensures Redmond Municipal Airport meets the most current Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) design standards to best serve the growing Central Oregon community for years to come. The construction cost for this project is estimated at $7,200,000.  93.75% of the project is funded through a FAA grant. The remainder is funded through a grant from the Oregon Department of Aviation and through local airport funds.
