Learn about our insane drive

The Salt Lake City Department of Airport’s new Salt Lake City Airport Redevelopment program is the first major hub airport replacement built in the 21st Century. The new airport will accommodate 26 million passengers annually and replaces the existing airport with two new linear concourses. The Holder-Big-D, joint venture is the CMAR for the construction of all new rental car facilities, the Central Terminal, the South Concourse (47 gates), the 3,600-car parking garage, new roadways, tunnels, underground utilities, jet fueling system, airfield paving, and the central utility plant. The Terminal, first phase of the South Concourse, and the parking garage opens for passengers in September 2020.

Timeline: Construction of the Airport

The New Gold Standard
of Airports

Sustainable: The new building will be designed to high environmental standards. Designers are aiming for a LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. A “Roadmap to Net Zero” is in development, which gives designers a plan for how the facility can ultimately generate as much power as it uses.

Designed to Accommodate Up to 26 Million Passengers Each Year

The Salt Lake City International Airport has been an economic catalyst for decades. Today, the airport serves more than 26 million passengers annually in facilities that were originally built more than 50 years ago. Twenty years from now, the airport is projected to serve 38 million passengers and is designed to accommodate the future growth through its master plan.

The Canyon

The new Salt Lake City Airport includes several unique features, such as the brand-new terminal Canyon—an artistic take on a central circulation space for all departing and arriving passengers. Running about 360 feet long and designed as an ode to the sprawling canyons that make up the Utah landscape, the Canyon is a welcoming gateway to passenger screening, dining options, and passenger arrival greeting space.

Set in Stone

Say hello to more covered parking. With 3,600 parking stalls—twice the capacity of the current parking garage—there will be plenty of parking and so convenient too. And to top it off, the price is only $20 daily through 2020.
