Employers at the airport are looking for people at all skill levels to work in hospitality, restaurant, retail and aviation-related positions.

30 new restaurants will open in the airport over the next 18 months, including a new food court in Terminal 1.

Next week the first and only hotel attached to the airport, InterContinental Minneapolis-St. Paul Airport, is expected to open. 

A recent report ranked MSP International Airport number one in the world for on-time performance.

"That's a big nod to the airlines for keeping things running smoothly and for MSP when we get those sorts of awards it's also a nod to our crews that keep the airfield clear in the winter," MSP International Airport spokesman John Welbes said.
