as new restaurants, including Sam Adams Cincinnati Brewhouse, gift shops and

said. "You'll also have free wi-fi and chargers at every seat, and a good
sense and feel of our region."

American, U.S. Airways and Air Canada, will join Delta in Terminal 3.

Kentucky International Airport Chief Executive Officer Candace McGraw said.
McGraw pointed to charter airlines that are adding year-round service to
vacation spots in Cancun, Punta Cana and Jamaica.
