SFO Airport Terminal 1 Construction Begins

SFO Terminal 1, serving Delta, Southwest and Frontier, is scheduled to open in 2020 and should meet LEED Gold Certification.

June 30, 2016

With the whack of shiny new sledgehammers, airport director John Martin and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee officially launched the $2.4 billion Terminal 1 demo and rebuild yesterday that will last eight years and bring 24 new gates to San Francisco International Airport's Terminal 1.

As the final stage of San Francisco International Airport's $4.1 billion 10-year capital improvement plan, Terminal 1 is being partially demolished to make way for two new boarding areas, a central check-in and security space, new baggage claim and mezzanine areas, and a new Grand Hyatt 350-room hotel.

Terminal 1 is SFO’s oldest facility. Renovation begins with the creation of an interim Boarding Area B to allow ongoing passenger use while construction workers create an entirely new structure.

Earlier this year, renovation to Terminal 3 was completed, Terminal 2 completed in 2011.

Here's the next 8-year construction schedule:

  • September 2016:    Interim Boarding Area B opens with 9 gates
  • December 2018:     New Boarding Area B opens with 9 gates
  • June 2019:              New Boarding Area expands to 17 gates
  • September 2020:    New Boarding Area B reaches full capacity of 24 gates
  • Mid-2024:                Terminal 1 Center, refreshed Boarding Area C complete
