The Kansas City Chamber of Commerce is backing a controversial proposal to consolidate the city's airport into one terminal.

The chamber voted Thursday to support a $1.2 billion proposal for Kansas City International Airport, joining other city officials who support replacing the three current terminals with a single terminal.

Critics say the current configuration makes KCI one of the most convenient airports for travelers in the country, offering easy access to terminals and parking.

But supporters say a single terminal would improve efficiency, passenger safety and convenience. And they say one terminal would allow the airport to grow in the future.

The Kansas City Star reports if the proposal proceeds, construction could start in late 2014 and be finished by late 2016.
