KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Airline representatives are warning that a proposal to reconfigure Kansas City International Airport could lead to less service for passengers.

A Southwest Airlines representative told a citizens task force Tuesday that airlines would not welcome changes that lead to substantially higher costs at the airport. Southwest executive vice president Ron Ricks said he was speaking for his airline, as well as Delta, United and American/US Air — the four major carriers at the airport.

The task force is taking public comments on whether to change the airport’s current structure of three separate terminals into one larger terminal.

The Kansas City Star reports Ricks predicted that KCI will see only “incremental” passenger growth for the near future, with or without a new terminal.
