Passenger Terminal Today

Work has begun on the construction of the new Terminal 1 (T1) facility at San Diego International Airport in California following the approval of an environmental impact report by the FAA.

In October, the board of the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority, the airport operator, unanimously approved the budget of US$2.6bn for the replacement of the existing 1960s terminal building.

The new terminal will offer a total of 30 gates, a refreshed collection of food and beverage, news, gifts, and retail concessions, as well as more security checkpoint lanes. It also includes improvements to the airport’s roadways system, making it easier to enter and exit the airport, and a parking plaza which will handle several ground transportation services.
