Airport Recent News  

The ongoing redevelopment project of Terminal 3 is to be completed in phases -  some of which will be done up to 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.  

Southwest  will invest in Terminal 4's new 8-gate Concourse - to open 2021.

As of May 2017 - 15 airlines support a $900M plan for 'critical' improvements and new infrastructure will include $396M maintenance & repair to both airfield & terminals, laying the groundwork for future development.  Separately, a new Air Traffic Control tower is to be included. The projects undertaken between 2017 and 2023/25 include airfield & terminals, and the smaller Northeast Airport.
