SANTA FE (AP) – Santa Fe Airport officials say departing passengers will have a more comfortable experience once terminal renovations are completed.

The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that passengers leaving the capital city have had to contend with restricted access to food and restrooms since security enhancements following the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

Santa Fe Airport Advisory Committee chairman Steve Ross says passengers have to sit in a tiny room after they go through security.

But a renovation expected to be complete in May will let screened passengers use a larger waiting area with access to restrooms and food.

Airport board member and Santa Fe Chamber of Commerce chief executive Simon Brackley says the updates will improve customer experience and attract more air service to the city.
