Upgrade under way at airport baggage return

VIENNA – A $375,000 upgrade to the baggage return conveyor at the Youngstown-Warren Regional Airport began Monday.

According to information released by Port Director of Aviation Dan Dickten, the replacement and expansion project will take up to six weeks. In the interim, Winner Aviation ground handling crews will bring return baggage to the terminal front curbside for passengers to pick up.

The new conveyor will be wider and longer than the current system. The project is being funded by 2011 bonds initiated for various terminal improvement projects.
