What that budget should be, Southwest wouldn't share.
A spokesperson for Edgemoor told 41 Action News the airlines are “fully supportive.”
Later, the company sent the following statement:
"Over the last year, our team, the airlines and City have worked in partnership to reach an agreement that delivers an airport Kansas City deserves and meets the needs of the airlines now and into the future. In Thursday, we look forward to updating the City Council and community at Business Session on several key topics including design, contracts and budget."
The timeline has also been pushed back since Edgemoor was selected. The new KCI terminal was originally tentatively scheduled to open November 2021. Earlier this year, that date changed to October 2022 at the earliest.
No word on if this latest cost increase will delay the project even further.
Edgemoor plans to provide an update to city leaders during a meeting scheduled for Thursday.
