Having been under construction for two and a half years, the new airport in Panama City is finally about to open. Dubbed Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport, the new facility boasts the title of being the first commercial airport build in the U.S. since 9/11. Not only is the new airport expected to change the dynamics of travel to our area, many are expecting increased growth and prosperity that would have been difficult to realize without this new addition to our area.
The grand opening ceremonies are this weekend with the airport being open to the public on Saturday from 9 am to 4 pm. But, if you can’t wait, here is a video of the new airport.
