PANAMA CITY BEACH, FL (October 19 , 2020) – The Panama-City – Bay County Airport and Industrial District is nearing completion of the two-year long process of updating the Airport Master Plan (MPU) for the Northwest Florida Beaches International Airport (ECP) to account for changes that have taken place at the Airport and in the aviation industry since the completion of the Airport’s July 2015 Airport Master Plan.

ECP will hold its first public informational meeting regarding the MPU on Thursday, October 29, 2020, from 2 – 3:30pm Central Time.
