Airport opening delayed another week

The new terminal at the Southwest Georgia Regional Airport is nearly ready to go, but unfortunately officials had to postpone the official opening by a week.

Airport Director Yvette Aehle says the postponement is due to not receiving their certificate of occupancy during the final inspection. Everything is still in place, however once four life safety items are corrected a little more work has to be done. Delta will begin their mechanical and tech work and after a few days everything should be good to go.

The new date of the terminal being operational is Wednesday August 7, 2013.
