Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport (IATA: BHM, ICAO: KBHM, FAA LID: BHM), formerly Birmingham Municipal Airport and later Birmingham International Airport, is the major airport that serves Birmingham, Alabama and Central Alabama. A joint civil-military facility, it is located five miles (8 km) northeast of downtown Birmingham Alabama, near the interchange of I-20 and I-59. BHM served 2.8 million passengers in 2012, and is the largest and busiest airport in the state of Alabama.

There is a $201.6 million dollar terminal renovation project in progress. This project includes a renovation and upgrade to the airport's existing concourse C, as well as completely new concourses A and B. There will also be changes made to the interior lobby and ticketing area of the main terminal building, as well as improving the way passengers get from the parking deck to the terminal. More security screening areas, concessions, as well as US customs offices will be added.

As of August 2011 the project is well underway, with Terminal A, the old cargo terminal, and concourse B already demolished. The first phase of construction was completed on February 26, 2013 with the entire modernization project to be complete by 2014. The second phase of construction is expected to begin in the spring of 2013 (when the new concourses A and B opens) when the airport's current and only concourse C will be demolished and renovated.
