Georgia’s non-Hartsfield-Jackson airports often fly under the radar, but the state is home to seven other commercial airfields.  Among those Augusta Regional Airport is the second largest, (after Savannah/Hilton Head) featuring more than 300,000 enplanements per year including a major spike around Master’s weekend.  The airport is soon getting a major facelift after securing a $3 million grant from the Airport Terminal Program, which it will use to expand its terminal and add boarding bridges to two additional gates.  Augusta Regional currently features daily flights to and from Washington D.C., Dallas, Atlanta and Charlotte, with new routes added every year around Master’s time as the city becomes the center of the sporting world.  The upgrades coming out of the federal grant will help ensure Augusta puts on its best face for the movers and shakers flying in during that early-April weekend.
