AIR Alliance, the joint venture comprising AECOM and PGAL, will design improvements at the airport in order to improve customer service and efficiency by addressing congestion resulting from an increase in slots; replace remote hardstand operations with contact gate facilities and provide a secure connectivity for passengers connecting between the piers in Terminal B/C.
The program will include the construction of a new pier to replace the 14 remote hardstands on the north side of the airport, as well as the relocation of multiple security checkpoints in Terminal B/C — which will provide passengers with seamless access between terminal gate areas without re-screening, relieve congestion at gates and provide secured access to National Hall, the primary shopping and dining location at the airport.
“We are proud to be a part of the US$1-billion Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport improvement program, as we partner with the authority to address the airport’s record passenger growth while continuing to focus on providing first-rate customer service,” said AECOM’s Program Manager Robert Kleinman. “Currently, more than 5,000 passengers are using the 14 outdoor boarding areas from Gate 35X to access their flights on a daily basis. We look forward to providing each passenger with an enhanced experience with increased comfort and eased connectivity.”
This project was awarded under the Terminal B/C Long-Term Redevelopment Program at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport indefinite delivery/indefinite quantity (IDIQ) contract. Services under this program cover a range of technical subjects, and are performed using a task order format.
