DATA SPOTLIGHT: Salt Lake City International Airport

This year CTC – Corporate Travel Community will feature some topical insights into the world’s airlines, airports and country markets. Here, using the extensive profile insights available to CAPA – Centre for Aviation members to deliver a data snapshot at where they sit today in the Covid-19 impacted world, we look at Salt Lake City International Airport, where the opening of its new Concourse B means that all airlines serving the Utah gateway now operate out of new facilities.

Following the opening of the 35 gate concourse A-west used by Delta Air Lines and which houses six international gates, the new 21 gate concourse B is now operational and will house Alaska Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Frontier Airlines, JetBlue Airways, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines. The two concourses are connected by al most 1,000 foot long tunnel – originally built in 2004.

The 21 gates in the new concourse have been allocated as follows: Alaska-1, American-2, Delta-7, Frontier-1, JetBlue-1, Southwest-4, and United-2. In addition, there are three common use – or city gates – that will be used by various airlines as needed, while gates B21 and B24 will serve as access points to a hard-stand operation for primarily regional aircraft.

This concludes Phase I of a transformation project and will see the previous concourses demolished to support Phase II developments, which include the build out of concourse A to the east and construction of the concrete portion of a permanent tunnel to transport passengers between concourses A and B. This is all due to be completed by late 2024.
