PROJECTS COMPLETED SINCE 2010
Aircraft Rescue Fire Fighting (ARFF)
These vehicles, and other firefighting equipment, are used for fire suppression crash rescue in the event of an aircraft emergency. These trucks are a critical part of CCIA's Emergency response and are operated by the airport Public Safety Division.
Rehabilitation & Reconstruction Improvements of Commercial and General Aviation Aprons
With safety and efficiency always in mind, these projects represent the culmination of ten years of improvements on the airfield. The projects include major infrastructure improvements on runways, taxiways and aprons and are possible because of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) which funds 90% of the costs. During normal years, the airport matches the other 10%.
The airport welcomed its first tenant into the International Business Center in 2021. The facility was built by a private development company and then leased to Fed Ex for its ground shipping operation in Corpus Christi.
New Security Barrier
Taxiway Kilo Extension
East GA & Terminal Apron
Quick Turn Around Rental Car Facility (QTA)
Federal Inspection Services rehabilitation
The Airport Communications Center is now larger and better equipped to help keep things safe around the airport. Contractors completed several security upgrades that were paid for by the Department of Homeland Security and the Federal Aviation Administration. The improvements include new cameras, new monitors, remodeling and expansion of the space where the dispatchers operate, a new generator for keeping things running during the event of a power outage and new lighting on the tarmac.
The Comm Center is really the nerve center for all communications between airport dispatchers and employees, federal agencies, the airlines and even at times, members of the general public. Airport dispatchers are constantly monitoring traffic on the airfield, the movement of public safety officers and maintenance crews, and the details of any kind of incident on airport property. The Communications Center will be ground zero for getting the appropriate emergency assistance to the right locations.
