Salt Lake City SLC Airport Overview

Salt Lake City International Airport SLC is Utah's primary - and one of the nation's largest airports. (It is also an Emergency Medical Dispatch / IAED-accredited airport.)  Delta's third-largest hub has its reservation center headquartered here.  PC World Magazine considers SLC Airport as one of the best airports for Tech Travelers.  Not only is the Airport within an hour's range from 11 major ski resorts, but it is also gateway to 42 state parks, and numerous golf courses, the closest of which is the Wingpointe Golf Course adjacent to the Airport.

SLC Airport is is only  a 10-minute ride northwest to downtown Salt Lake City via Interstate Hwy 80 and is  close to  I-215 (Belt Route). The Salt Lake Palace Convention Center and downtown hotels can be reached within 15 minutes.

With over 20M passengers annually and three major runways,  Salt Lake City Airport is hub to Delta Air Lines and is served by major airlines offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe. However, Delta presently represents nearly three quarters of all airlines.

Salt Lake City Airport has three passenger terminals - T1, T2 &  the International Terminal IT - connected on level 2  to each other and to their concourses.

Passenger Pickup /Dropoff: Delta passengers exit from Terminal 2.  International Arrivals exit from International Terminal.  All other passengers exit from Terminal 1.  Pickup & dropoff lanes in front of the terminals are separated.  For passenger pickup, use the 'Park & Wait Lot' (free cell phone lot) - as you enter the Airport, it is to your right, south of Terminal 1. Wait in the car until your party collected bags & calls you to be picked up at the curb.
Future Airport Developments: The ongoing Airport transformation process is aimed to eventually result in one integrated passenger terminal, connected to linear concourses with a total of 75 gates (all with loading bridges). A new Concourse to the west o the new terminal, with 18 gates, is to be completed by 2018; thereafter the new terminal will be connected to Concourses A - D, and the old terminal & parking garage will be demolished.  A new Concourse east of the new terminal will then be constructed with 13 gates & with connections to the old concourses - who may be renovated or demolished thereafter.
Construction began with relocation of rental car facilities to a free area west of the current terminals;  groundbreaking took place mid-July 2014 & the total project is to be completed by 2025.
