Airport Renovations, Expansion

The Savannah-Hilton Head International Airport is celebrating ten years by making some changes. Not only is the airport getting new carpets and a new escalator, it's are also celebrating a 14 percent increase in travelers from last year. In fact, their April numbers are 19 percent higher than last year.

The airport commission says all this is thanks to an increase in flights. "We do have more seats, you know we've been telling them for years, get us the seats we'll fill the planes, and now all of our pleading and planning has really paid off," said commission spokesperson Lori Griffin.

The airport is also doing a major expansion starting at the end of this year. They are adding two more gates to expand their flight options.
