Current Construction

Plenty of change has taken place at MSP over the past five years. Every step of your journey has undergone a reimagining, including parking, check-in, dining, shopping, passenger amenities (like the new InterContinental MSP Airport Hotel), and baggage claim. Today's travelers enjoy new restaurants and retail stores, thoughtfully designed restrooms, more on-site parking, and an overall smoother visit.

But we aren't through yet. Click on the links below to learn more about two significant improvement efforts underway at Terminal 1.

Long Term Facility Planning

The Metropolitan Airports Commission (MAC) updates MSP's Long Term Comprehensive Plan (LTCP) regularly. The last update occurred in 2010 for the planning horizon of 2030. The next planning process has begun and will look out to the year 2040.

The 2040 plan will focus on improvements to passenger facilities to meet 2040 forecasts, as did the previous plan for the year 2030. No significant improvements are contemplated for the airfield, as it has an adequate capacity as is.

The most recent LTCP can be found below.
