Memphis Airport prepares for opening night

The long-awaited opening of the new-look B Concourse at Memphis International Airport (MEM) has been confirmed. At the time of going to press, the first flight at the revamped facility is due to be a Delta Air Lines service, touching down at the Tennessee gateway at 1818hrs on February 15. Departures are scheduled to begin from the new area the following day.
