“One of the things about this region is it’s such a high leisure and outdoor activity market,” explained Steve Sisneros, managing director of Airport Affairs with Southwest Airlines. “What we’re finding, is that many people are looking for those options to get out and do something.”
With Phase I of the new Salt Lake City Airport complete, demolition is already underway on the old airport to begin building the next phase.
Phase II will include building out Concourse A to the east and construction of a permanent tunnel to transport passengers between concourses A and B. This is expected to be completed by late 2024.
