On this trip, OLLI had an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at ticket counters, inbound baggage facilities, passenger screening rooms, waiting areas, and jet bridges at the General Wayne A. Downing Peoria International Airport.
Two dozen OLLI members also learned how the new 125,000 square-foot terminal places ticket counters, baggage claim and rental car desks on one floor in the main concourse, serving around 1 million travelers through 12 gates annually.
OLLI thanks Airport Director Gene Olson for arranging this visit and Operations Manager Doug Palmer for spending a wonderful morning with our lifelong learners.
