San Bernardino Airport hopes for international travelers

The two-terminal San Bernardino International Airport is almost complete, after a $200 million effort to convert the former Norton Air Force Base into a regional airport for commercial airliners. But so far, no airliners have shown up to use it. Maya Sugarman/KPCC

It’s not every day that you get to walk into a brand new, empty airport terminal, but I got a recent tour of the San Bernardino International Airport.

Last month, San Bernardino officials showed off the airport's new international arrivals terminal. It represents the last phase of a $200 million effort to convert the former Norton Air Force Base into a regional airport that commercial airlines can use. The problem so far: commercial airlines haven't shown up to use it.
