Although passenger numbers dropped 4 percent in 2012—a trend that so far has continued into 2013—this Midwest airport serving nearly 10 million annual fliers has big plans for the future. A proposed $1.2 billion redevelopment would consolidate MCI’s three terminals into one, centralizing security into a single location and expediting check-in for quicker ticketing and bag drop. But the plan has sparked local controversy among some who believe the expense isn’t necessary for an already efficient airport.
