United Airlines and Air Canada were supposed to move Wednesday night from Terminal A to Terminal C at Kansas City International Airport, but those plans got delayed.
KCI spokesman Joe McBride says technical issues were to blame.
“As they were getting into the eleventh hour of the move, the computer technology was not all coming on line,” said McBride. “So it looked like the airline was not going to have the ability to check people in be it at the ticket counter or the kiosk.”
McBride says he expects the terminal change will take place early next week.
The Kansas City metro area experienced its first winter storm overnight Wednesday. Strong winds contributed to whiteout conditions for the morning rush hour. Dozens of schools are closed Thursday including Blue Valley, Kansas City, Kan., Kansas City Public Schools, Lawrence, and Shawnee Mission.
Just three years ago the Kansas City Missouri City Council voted down a single-terminal plan for Kansas City International Airport. Now it has approved a $4.4 million study to determine how to build and pay for the very same thing. Why the change of heart and how is one terminal better than three?
