PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - Philadelphia International Airport officials say the renovation of Terminal F will create 300 new jobs. The renovation is scheduled to be complete in October and 16 new businesses will open there.

They’ll start looking for employees with a job fair next week.

The airport added Terminal F ten years ago for U.S. Airways regional commuter service– small jets going short distances for what, airport spokesperson Victoria Lupica says, everyone assumed would be a limited number of passengers.

“No one thought that regional jet travel was going to be that important,” Lupica said. “But in fact, it’s one of our busiest terminals.”

Lupica says a sixth of the airport’s 31-million annual passengers go through Terminal F which is served by just five concessions. So in addition to enlarging the building, the shuttle bus area, security and baggage claim, more services are going in.

“We’ll be adding retail as well as food and beverage,” Anna DiGregorio of concession manager MarketPlace says the new jobs that brings will be filled at the July 30th job fair at the Linc.

“We have a lot of jobs to fill and we’re really looking for a great turn-out.”
