Wouldn't it be nice to not have to travel to New Orleans or Pensacola to find cheaper flights? Mobile is working on it.
A team of experts are developing a master plan to bring a larger and more conveniently located airport to downtown Mobile, relocating all commercial flights from Mobile Regional Airport to Brookley. While it is still a few years away from being finished, the goal for the $160 million project is an eight-gate terminal airport offering a variety of airlines and lower ticket prices.
The Covid-19 Pandemic has taken a toll on the aviation industry, but it may just give Mobile enough time to plan, develop, and execute this new airport before the airline market returns in full swing.
