New security at CID


CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - The Eastern Iowa Airport is seeing more and more passengers fly out of it, with an overall increase of about 11 percent of passengers in 2019.

Now those passengers have easier ways to get to and from their gates.

The airport recently opened its new security screening area, which had been under construction for about six months.

The airport also opened a new exit area, featuring an automated security system.

Future projects at the airport include a new outdoor patio, a sports bar, and more restrooms with that work wrapping up by the end of this year.
