Travel to and from San Francisco continues to become faster and more enjoyable. Faced with record-breaking passenger flows, the San Francisco International Airport will begin renovating Terminal 1, home to a number of major domestic airlines, on June 29th. New boarding areas, revamped central check-in and security spaces, and a new mezzanine should increase efficiency and ease connections to parking and the airport’s AirTrain service. The Terminal 1 renovation comes on the heels of expansions to Terminals 2 and 3 and is the last project in a 10-year plan to offer new amenities and improve airport infrastructure.
Terminal 1 currently houses domestic airlines Delta (NYSE: DAL), Southwest (NYSE: LUV) and Frontier. It will be partially demolished to make way for the construction and renovation of two new boarding areas, central check-in and security spaces, baggage claim and a new mezzanine to connect the terminal to AirTrain and parking.
The new terminal is scheduled to open in 2020 and should meet LEED Gold Certification. In the meantime, a temporary boarding area will open this month.
