Effective the morning of October 27, 2006, the upper level roadway leading to the new departure terminal building and airline ticket counters at Richmond International Airport will open. Commercial ground transportation and courtesy vehicle operations will remain as follows:
Courtesy, Mini-Bus and charter bus customer drop off and pick up operations are restricted to the lower level commercial lane, as they are now.
Sedan and limousine drop off operations will switch from what was the lower level inner Terminal roadway departure curb to the 2nd level departure curb. The 2nd level departure terminal will be available for use as indicated by roadway signage.
There will be several roadway message board signs on Airport Drive announcing the departure/ticketing changes to the general public. Please instruct your drivers that parking or leaving vehicles unattended, picking up passengers etc, on the upper level is strictly prohibited and only allowed in authorized areas of the lower level commercial lane as indicated in your Concessionaire agreement.
