-l alm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, Nov. 10, 1968 rmi:, i v IT I W "I i . - Laiy Mm., II PBIA Terminal Is Noted For Its Functional, Modern Beauty Airport Handles Growing Traffic Gracious Surroundings In The Olympus Lounge By PAUL PRICE ml iLl HP? r 4 roomieir frhoim bus, nrcore (fyn Andl MewUbirk I 4nl V" ill1 m ft First groundbound look at the Palm Beaches for many Is the functionally modern terminal at Palm Beach International Airport ( PBIA). It presents a fresh first face. Whether the airliner swept east to the airport from an approach over the edge of the Everglades or swooped in from over the ocean and across the sand at Palm Beach, the terminal Is the beginning. Large, it serves the needs of some quarter-million arriving persons each year. They come and go on Airlift International, Bahamas Airways, Delta Air Lines, Eastern Air Lines, Gold Coast Air Taxi, National Airlines, Shawnee Air Taxi and United Air Lines. Avis and Hertz earlier this year completed new rental car centers on the airport grounds to serve terminal users. Architecture of the centers is compatible with the lines of the modern, new terminal. Other new facilities to go up at the airport are similarly planned. Passenger traffic through PBIA is growing some 10 to 15 per cent annually. During the "season" in winter two years ago, there were 252,088 arrivees and departees through PBIA's terminal. But from December last year through April, the total of deplaning and emplaning passengers spurted to 318,520. It is anticipated that similar growth will be recorded this season. The terminal and the airport facilities are more than adequate to handle the growth. Although PBIA is fully instrumented for aircraft handling in any kind of weather, this is hardly necessary. The airport's records indicate that it can reasonably be expected to be in use 365 days a year with visual flight rules. For the convenience of travelers, guests and "visitor greeters" there are a barber shop, gift shop and coffee shop on the main floor of PBIA's terminal. And on the mezzanine, The Olympus restaurant and lounge offer food and drink in plush surroundings that also offer a view of aircraft take-offs and landings.
