(June 27, 2022) – Parsons Corporation (NYSE: PSN) announced today that the company was selected by the Greater Asheville Regional Airport Authority (GARAA) to provide program management, including evaluation, development, and management of the terminal building modernization and expansion project.
To accommodate the growing number of travelers and enhance the airport customer experience, the new $240 million airport terminal will replace the existing seven gate, 115,000 square foot terminal and transform the space into a 275,000 square foot modern facility with 12 passenger boarding gates.
