The airport held a ribbon cutting ceremony Tuesday afternoon for its newly completed terminal.

The expansion and changes are part of the airport's $201 million Terminal Modernization project.

Airport administrators say the new terminal has a centralized security checkpoint that will provide for easier access between concourses and new retail businesses.

A new phase Birmingham Mayor William Bells says will showcase the city to travelers, coming in and out of the airport.

The airport officials say they're about 65% complete of their two-phase project. The new terminal opens for business March 13.
