PORTLAND, Maine (AP) - A company that serves private aircraft and charters at Portland International Airport is upgrading its passenger terminal.

Northeast Air plans to spend more than $2 million to create a new gateway for corporate jets and private aircraft. The company expects to break ground this November, and the upgraded facility is due to open next year.

Company President Henry Laughlin said the investment is being made to make a better first impression for travelers and business leaders who fly into the airport.

Northeast Air has operated for more than 45 years and employs more than 70 people in Portland. It provides maintenance, aviation fuel and other services for corporate jets and privately owned aircraft.
