CHEEKTOWAGA, N.Y. - The Buffalo Niagara International Airport's terminal is ready to get a much-needed and pricey facelift.

NFTA spokesperson Helen Tederous confirmed to 2 On Your Side that the airport will receive an $80 million renovation project, which includes expanding the over 20-year old terminal.

The upcoming improvements will improve pedestrian flow, including the separation of departing and arriving passengers. The project will also improve curbside congestion and improve the baggage claim capacity and security.

Tederous confirms that the preliminary work is scheduled to start this month on December 18, with major construction to start in the spring of 2019.

There is no word on if the renovations will effect holiday travel for this year.

Below are the renderings of what the new terminal will look like:
