Charleston International Airport announced Wednesday the completion of an extensive four-year renovation and expansion.

Under the Terminal Redevelopment and Improvement Program, the airport gained an additional 100,000 square feet (929 square meters) of space, which includes a new rental car pavilion and a consolidated TSA security checkpoint. The airport also added a new front curb for arriving passengers.

Five new boarding gates were added, increasing the number to 15, and new jet bridges were installed. In addition, the baggage handling system was expanded.

Service on new routes was added and 16 new non-stop flights to 21 destinations are now offered.

A new central hall with two-story windows and glass walls provides a view of the runway. The hall also has an 18-foot (five-meter) tall dome that brings natural light into the terminal. Also added were a variety of new dining and shopping venues.
