In a move that will hopefully let the airport live up to its 'international' name, the Atlantic City International Airport has completed a 75,000 square-foot expansion that included an expanded terminal, new boarding sites, and a check in and inspection station for federal officials to check international visitors. Now the 'international' airport just needs flights from actual international sources.

A $25.1 million, 75,000 square-foot expansion of Atlantic City International Airport officially opened Monday. State and local officials were on hand for the grand opening.

The project includes an expanded terminal, larger baggage claim, new passenger boarding bridges, and a federal inspection station for processing international flights.

Despite its name, the airport has no scheduled international service. Currently, one commercial passenger carrier, Spirit Airlines, serves Atlantic City.
