Long Beach Airport Award


June 18, 2013 – The California Transportation Foundation (CTF) recently awarded the City of Long Beach its 2013 Aviation Project of the Year award for the new passenger terminal at Long Beach Airport. CTF awards recognize excellence in both public and private sector transportation projects across the state. “This award is validation of the hard work, ingenuity and planning that went into the airport’s new concourse and made it such a resounding success,” Long Beach Mayor Bob Foster said in a statement. The 77,850-square-foot facility opened to the public in December 2012 with the intention of raising the level of passenger experience coming and going through the airport. Amenities include an iPad bar with free wireless Internet, an outdoor palm tree court, local eateries and more. Partners in the airport terminal project were also recognized, including Arcadis, HOK Architects, Mendoza & Associates, Soltek Pacific and Parsons Brinckerhoff. “We are honored to receive the Aviation Project of the Year award from such a distinguished panel of transportation professionals,” Mario Rodriguez, airport director, said in a statement. “With the new concourse, Long Beach Airport redefines what world-class should be.”
