T. F. Green Airport is a popular alternative to Boston, Massachusetts' often busy Logan International Airport, as delays and wait time are minimal. The airport's expansion is limited, as it is surrounded by residential homes. However, the Rhode Island Airport Commission (RIAC) now owns some residential property on the eastern side of the airport near the Aircraft Rescue and Firefighting building. Most homes on Cedar Swamp Road and Pembroke Avenue have since been demolished, likely to make way for future expansion.

Renovation/Expansion plans

Terminal Renovation Project

Since the new terminal was opened in 1996, T.F. Green has become more congested due to increased traffic and post-September 11th security changes. As a result, terminal renovations have recently begun. According to the RIAC website, these improvements include:

  • Expansion of the airline baggage rooms to accommodate the construction of a new In-Line Explosive Detection System (EDS) Baggage Handling System, allowing the removal of the EDS equipment currently residing in the terminal lobby;
  • Expansion of the security screening checkpoint by widening the area to accommodate eight lanes and lengthening it to allow for increased passenger screening areas;
  • Construction of exit ramps that will allow deplaning passengers to proceed directly to the lower level baggage claim area;
  • Increased concessions on both pre- and post-security, including a new seating area in baggage claim on the lower level;
  • Expansion of the second and third floor RIAC administration offices to accommodate RIAC staff and support space, TSA screening stations, and increased leasable space; and
  • Addition of new ticket counter positions on both the north and south sides of the terminal lobby to accommodate future commercial service enhancements.
