Port of Pasco Wins Washington State Port of the Year


Congratulations to the Port of Pasco!

The Port of Pasco was awarded the 2017 Port of the Year by the Washington State Public Ports Association (WPPA) .   The award recognized the Tri-Cities Airport renovation, the Pasco Processing Center, and the Osprey Pointe Business Park.

In receiving the award, Commission President Jean Ryckman stated “The Port of Pasco is honored to receive this award and to be recognized for the contributions to our community. She added “While people saw the two and a half year construction project, they didn’t see the five years of planning and budget discussions before the first wall was ever knocked down. WPPA is recognizing the entire effort of the Port of Pasco Commission and staff in making this project happen for their community.”

Airport Terminal Renovation

The airport terminal renovation was a three year construction project but was an effort of 8 years of planning.  It culminated in doubling the size of the terminal, as well as adding a new boarding concourse. They also added new gates, a new restaurant, bar, coffee and gift shop, children’s play area, and expanded security screening and passenger seating areas. The Tri-Cities Airport (PSC) is the largest airport in the Southeastern Washington and Northeastern Oregon region.  It is also the fourth largest air carrier airport in the state of Washington.

“The Port is committed to promoting growth and economic prosperity in our region and we are greatly honored to be recognized as the Port of the Year,” stated Randy Hayden, the Port of Pasco Executive Director. “Projects like this are years in the making and I particularly want to recognize past Commissioners and staff who laid the groundwork for the successes we are seeing today.”

As always, thanks for reading and we welcome any additional information or comments that you may have.
