PDX airport overspent $100M for artsy roof. Airline fees wasted

By Taxpayers Association of Oregon


Holiday travelers in busy airports should know that Portland airport overspent by $100 million to build a luxury roof.  Instead of spending an estimated $20 million for a basic steel roof, Portland International Airport spent $125 million for a super-expensive wooden art design.  This $125 million was funded by airline fees.

The airport says, at $120 million, they wanted people to have a more enjoyable airport experience.

Those airline fees could have created a better customer experience by building more airport restrooms, adding more TSA agents to move lines quicker, or simply reducing airline fees so flying can be more affordable.
