Augusta Regional Airport (AGS) is happy to announce additional direct flight options for tournament week!
AGS has received confirmation from both airlines of additional direct flight options during Masters’ Week. Both airlines historically offer additional direct flights during this busy week. This year’s flight schedule is as follows:
Austin, Texas Boston, Massachusetts Charlotte, N. Carolina Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas New York (LaGuardia) Miami, Florida Chicago, Illinois Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Phoenix, Arizona Washington D.C. (Reagan National)
Atlanta, Georgia Detroit, Michigan New York (LaGuardia)
“As things begin to normalize, it is great to see the expansion and growth of the Masters’ Week airline flight offerings.” Said Herbert L. Judon Jr., Airport Executive Director. “We are privileged to provide one of the main gateways for thousands of visitors travelling to and from our city. However, I also want to especially remind our locals that these additional flights also represent an opportunity to “get out of town” and enjoy service to destinations we may not normally provide.”
The above flight offerings begin April 2nd and will run through April 10th, 2023. Visit www.FlyAGS.com today to book your flights.
Augusta Regional Airport (AGS) is proud to be a recipient of an FY2023 Airport Terminal Program (ATP) grant. The ATP is part of the 2021 Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). It is a five year 5-Billion-dollar competitive discretionary grant program aimed at infrastructure enhancements at our nation’s Airports. One of the goals of the program is to help meet the growing demand of air travel and invest in airport improvements.
The federal government announced on February 27th that AGS will receive a grant in the amount of $3,000,000. This money will be used to help fund a portion of the Airport’s Terminal Gates 3 & 4 Rehabilitation/Expansion Project. The AGS project was one of 104 selected from 99 airports. The primarily goal of this project is to reconfigure two terminal aircraft gates to install passenger boarding bridges in lieu of ground boarding (walking outside). AGS currently has operational passenger boarding bridges at two of six aircraft gates.
“We are extremely grateful for the federal support and thank all those who worked and advocated for us.” Said Mr. Herbert L. Judon Jr. Airport Executive Director. “These funds will provide for a large portion of the construction of our Terminal Improvement Project. Once complete, we will add extra square footage, new amenities, and two additional passenger boarding bridges. This very important endeavor will further modernize our terminal facility, increase functionality, and significantly enhance the customer experience.”
The Airport is slated to begin the terminal construction in mid-summer 2023 and it is projected for completion in the first quarter of 2024.
