As John Glenn Columbus International Airport continues to experience increasing passenger travel levels, steps are being taken to help meet the airport’s growing needs while further enhancing the traveler experience beginning with the construction of a new consolidated rental car (ConRAC) facility. The ConRAC, scheduled to open in Summer 2021, will be a dedicated facility comprised of a customer service lobby and adjoining ready/return area for all rental car companies, along with on-site provisions for refueling, washing and prepping vehicles. This facility will offer customers modern amenities in a centralized location within airport property. In addition, relocating rental car operations to a dedicated facility will free up approximately 1,400 additional parking spaces within the existing public parking garage, which often operates at parking capacity. These enhancements also provide flexibility for future airport planning of projects including the ongoing relocation of major utilities and construction of a new extended-stay hotel, as well as potential future plans for a new passenger terminal and a multi-level public parking garage. This presentation will discuss the initial enabling projects, site challenges and highlights of the design and construction of the ConRAC facility from the perspective of the lead design firm, TranSystems Corporation.
