    Kansas City International Airport may close Terminal A by year’s end as a result of the American Airlines-US Airways merger, a Kansas City Aviation Department spokesman said Thursday.

    Tom McKenna, the department’s director of marketing, said the department hopes to consolidate all of Terminal A’s operations into Terminal C by the end of 2013 to accommodate the expanded operations caused by the merging of AMR Corp. (OTCBB: AAMRQ), American’s parent company, and US Airways Group Inc. (NYSE: LCC). The two companies are expected to complete their operational merger by the end of the year, as well.

    United Airlines, run by United Continental Holdings Inc. (NYSE: UAL) and American’s co-tenant at Terminal A, will be moved to Terminal C, as well, McKenna said.

    The move should upgrade the airport’s operational efficiency and reduce overall costs, McKenna said. He was not able to provide specific estimates for the cost of the move or the savings that would be created by mothballing Terminal A at KCI. (Code: MCI).
