About the Project

SFO is redeveloping Terminal 1 (T1), one of its oldest terminals, to meet the needs of modern travelers and revolutionize the guest experience. T1 was built in the early 1960s and over time has become less able to accommodate the millions of passengers that it handles each year. With a focus on sustainable design and construction, T1 is anticipated, at minimum, to receive LEED Gold certification. T1 is currently home to Southwest Airlines, Delta Airlines and Frontier Airlines.


The $1.2 billion project includes: design and construction of T1’s north, south and central areas (curb through airline check in); and a new central area with improved spaces for passenger check-in, a consolidated security checkpoint, a re-composure area, a new common use Baggage Handling System and baggage claims and a new mezzanine with connections to the AirTrain and the Central Parking Garage.
