The public is invited this weekend to get its first look at the new terminal at Stafford Regional Airport.

An invitation-only dedication is planned at the 10,000-square-foot facility Saturday afternoon. A public open house is scheduled between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Sunday.

West Point-based Curtis Contracting Inc. was the general contractor for the terminal, which was designed by Petersburg-based architecture firm StudioAmmons.

The $3.4 million facility includes a passengers’ lounge, business center, conference room, flight planning and pilots’ area, administrative offices, vending machines and restrooms. It replaces a double-wide trailer that previously served as the airport’s terminal.

Airport officials think the new facility will help attract businesses that may use it for work-related travel.

The Stafford Regional Airport Authority is financing the project through about $2 million in grants from the Virginia Department of Aviation and a $1.4 million loan from Stafford County.
