It features a behind-the-scenes tour of Kansas City International Airport taken by members of the advisory group as they learned about the airport's infrastructure, security and other operational issues.
The advisory group comprises community members from across the metro area appointed by Mayor Sly James. Members have been meeting twice a month since July to study airport issues and learn more about airport operations and the potential impact of any change.
The group expects to make a recommendation in April 2014 to Mayor James and the City Council. The City Council must approve any new plans for the terminal configuration, and the public must vote on any change requiring issuing bonds to finance the project.
