Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport – Concourse A

If you have not flown in the last 10 months, you have missed seeing all of the renovation happening at the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky International Airport at  Concourse A.

What’s new at the airport? Terminal 2 has closed and American Airlines, United Airlines, US Airways and Air Canada have relocated to Terminal 3. All passenger airlines now operate solely from Terminal 3.

CONCOURSE A
Airline patrons will now enjoy electrical and USB outlets at every seat. They will also enjoy seeing color photos of Greater Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky hanging throughout the concourse. The “jet” bridges feature wall wraps with city-based themed images.

USO LOUNGE
Concourse A is also featuring a USO lounge with sofas, desks and a snack bar. The airport reports that 10,000 military personnel travel through CVG every year. (The military lodge in Concourse B will remain open.)

SIBCY CLINE WELCOMES YOU
Sibcy Cline Realtors has maintained a 10-foot kiosk at arrival area of Terminal 3 for the past 5 years welcoming all to the area. We look forward to welcoming even more people now with more passengers using Terminal 3 to exit the airport.

FUN FACTS

  • CVG offers 180 daily departures to 53 non-stop cities.
  • “CVG” stands for “Covington”, the nearest city  to the airport location when it opened in 1947. Some consider this abbreviation to stand or “Cincinnati Very Good” – a slogan created by Neil Armstrong, a former CVG board of directors member.
  • Art on display at the airport – Fourteen 20’x20′ mural mosaics are located in the airport terminals. These Art Deco works of art were originally part of the walls of Cincinnati’s Union Terminal railway station and are the work of artist Winold Reiss. His large-scale drawings were rendered into half-inch square pieces of colored glass that were attached to huge sheets of paper in Germany. Once transported to Cincinnati, the tiles were pressed into wet plaster on the walls at the terminal. In 1973 the murals were carefully removed and transported to the airport. Look at the murals!
