Charleston International Airport will open two new ticket counters Tuesday as part of its ongoing airport renovation project. 

The new American Airlines and US Airways ticket counters will be located on the west side of the CHS Ticketing Hall. They are moving from their previous counters, which were built in the 1980s. 

Officials say the new ticketing area will transform the passenger check-in experience. The project includes overhead monitors with airline and flight information, low-rise quartz countertops for easy accessibility for wheelchair-bound customers, and new lighting and windows. 

The Ticketing Hall renovation is part of a $189 million Terminal Redevelopment and Improvement Program, which began in 2012 and is scheduled to be completed by Fall 2015. 

The two airlines will join JetBlue, United Airlines, Porter Airlines, and Silver Airways at the renovated Ticketing Hall. Southwest Airlines is expected to make the move in July, followed by Delta Airlines in September.
