Present & Future Airport Developments:
- By Fall 2017- Under the Sustainability Project, $32M of installations of air conditioning & ventilation upgrades and other environmentally beneficial changes will be in place to drasticallly reduce carbon emissions
- By 2018, a new baggage screening system is to double current speed & is intended to replace the manual system of Central Terminal, while the current automated system of South Terminal will be renovated - creating one interconnected system with 12 new X-ray spectroscopy (EDS) machines. The project also includes new post-security corridors linking Concourses G & H, while the North Terminal's gates are to be retrofitted for the new jets (later, this may also be done in the Central Terminal).
- It is planned to renovate the end of Concourse H to handle international flights of the large A380 aircraft. Added elevators & stairs will take passengers to the third level of the concourse, construct access points to present sterile areas, and Federal Inspection Service facilities at South Concourse for Customs /Immigration checkpoints. Gates H15/16 are being modified. Holding rooms will be extended, concession areas relocated & expanded and the current level 3 corridor converted into a sterile corridor. No starting or completion dates are yet available.
