Current and future Airport developments: The ongoing redevelopment project of Terminal 3 is to be completed in phases, some of which will be done by late 2017, with the remaining work to end by 2019/20. The project is broken down into three components:
- Component 1 involves a new, consolidated security checkpoint to reduce wait times; additional airline ticket counters and more baggage handling capacity; overhauling HVAC & vertical circulation systems, and new finishes in the interior and exterior.
- Component 2 involves the replacement of the old South Concourse (to be torn down) by a new 15-gate concourse. The added gates at the new concourse will result in closure of airline operations at T2. Major improvements in this area are to include new food & retail concessions, new amenities and a large airline hold room.
- Component 3 involves the passenger flow reconfiguration & upgrades to concessions and provides new food & drink offers, and new interior & exterior finishes at North Concourse.
