SALISBURY, Md.- Changes are on the horizon for the Salisbury Regional Airport.

Rosenfeld's Jewish Deli is the newest addition to the airport. 

Tom Macey grabbed a sandwich before boarding his flight to Philadelphia. He was one of the lucky ones since all the other flights were canceled Thursday due to Hurricane Michael.. 

"Rosenfeld's is known for their quality, large oversized sandwiches and I really enjoy it," Macey said. 

WBOC spoke with Dawn Veatch, airport manager, who she said there is a lot more coming in the near future, including five new projects. 

Veatch said the airport is an economic engine. 

"We've got to come up with alternative travel, they can't build another bridge in 10 miles but I can expand the runway and expand service and get people to fly out of their community airport," Veatch said. 

Veatch said there will be an airplane wash rack which is just like a car wash for airplanes. She also said they are building hangers for regular planes, private jets, and drones. 

"That hanger is going to house drones, it's going to be a great operation and it will be wonderful for learning experience  and an environment for kids," Veatch said. 

WBOC asked Veatch if there will be additional flights, to which she replied, "That's what an airport strives for is to increase your service, increase your airport destinations and things and we work very hard on that."

Veatch said for what's to come the sky is the limit.
