The local chapter of the American Institute of Architects is encouraging the use of a peer review adviser to help the city with the selection, design and development of a new single-terminal modernization plan for Kansas City International Airport. AIA Kansas City, which supports replacing KCI’s (MCI) outmoded three-terminal layout with a new single terminal, also has offered to recommend candidates for the peer review adviser’s role from its 1,100-member roster. According to the organization, a peer review adviser is an architect who can help city officials understand design concepts, propose alternative solutions, communicate with City Council and help advise public information campaigns.
Alaska Airlines has announced new nonstop service between Kansas City International Airport (MCI) and San Francisco International Airport (Code:SFO) — one of the positive spinoffs from the carrier's recent acquisition of Virgin America three months ago. On Thursday, Alaska announced the addition of 13 new nonstop flight destinations from San Francisco International Airport and Mineta San Jose International Airport. With the additional flights, Alaska Airlines and Virgin America will offer 125 daily nonstop flights to 42 destinations from the three major Bay Area airports, which also includes Oakland International Airport (OAK).
Starting March 13, Southwest Airlines will begin offering daily nonstop service between Kansas City International Airport and Austin, Texas. The two-hour flights, which will arrive at 1:40 p.m. and depart at 2:10 p.m. via 143-seat Boeing 737 aircraft, will allow the Kansas City Aviation Department to cross off its list of new direct-flight targets its top domestic destination without nonstop service. “We’ve got some really great tools when it comes to talking with our airlines in trying to recruit new nonstop service,” Meyer said, citing passenger statistics.
