Harrisburg International Airport's parent this week approved $300,000 worth of contracts for improvements at the Dauphin County transportation hub.

The news comes as airport officials also noted passenger traffic increases, including record numbers for one carrier.

Contracts approved by the Susquehanna Area Regional Airport Authority (SARAA) will allow HIA to replace an old long-term parking shuttle bus with a new one, begin the process of replacing the airline Flight Information Display System in the terminal building and online, continue to maintain the parking garage and to design restroom upgrades in the terminal building, SARAA Executive Director Timothy Edwards said.

"HIA is known for its convenient, clean and easy to use facilities; however, next month the terminal complex turns 13 years old," Edwards said. "As a result, we need to continue to invest in key areas of the complex to keep up with new technology while improving aging facilities."

Air Canada Sets June traffic record

During June, Air Canada served 1,845 total passengers at HIA, marking its busiest June ever at the airport, according to statistics released this week.

Air Canada’s additional Toronto flight is proving to be popular with business travelers flying to Toronto, and to destinations throughout Canada, Europe and Asia, Edwards said.

Through June 30, a total of 591,775 passengers used HIA overall — a 3.4 percent increase when compared to the same date in 2016.
