Long Beach Airport Modernization Highlighted in ACI-NA’s Centerlines

Long Beach Airport

An article detailing the HOK-designed renovation and restoration of Long Beach Airport, authored by the facility’s director, Bryant Francis, is featured in the 2015 Fall/Winter edition of Centerlines, a publication of Airports Council International – North America (ACI-NA).

“Long heralded as a throwback to the early days of air travel, [Long Beach Airport has] begun to infuse that inherent glamour with a heavy dose of modern convenience and design. In order to better serve our local and visiting customers, a brand new $45 million passenger concourse opened to the public in December 2012, and has received continuous praise from guests, media outlets and industry associations ever since.

“The new 74,000-sq.-ft. concourse has helped Long Beach Airport become known nationwide as a model for aesthetic beauty, native drought-tolerant landscaping and local business partnerships. The eateries in the passenger concourse are comprised primarily of well-known Long Beach establishments, solidifying our commitment and connection to the city.”

“The result has been a casual and comfortable travel experience, with a touch of luxury. Our courtyard, lined with palm trees along a hardwood boardwalk, are the first hints that you’ve arrived in a different kind of city. After all, you’re only five miles away from the beach when you step onto the tarmac upon arrival.”
