San Antonio International Airport Unveils Designs for New Terminal

San Antonio International Airport (SAT) has revealed the design renderings and a 3D model of its new terminal.

This project is part of the airport’s Terminal Development Program (TDP), which is scheduled for completion by mid-2028.

The preliminary designs were produced in co-operation with San Antonio Airport System (SAAS) and design firm, Corgan, along with its project partners Lake|Flato Architects and Kimley-Horn.

The plans include a 17-gate expansion, six of which will be able to accommodate wide-body international flights.

More than 850,000 square feet of new terminal space will be introduced, with larger seating areas at each gate and 41,000 square feet of new concessions space.

In addition, the project incorporates a landscaped paseo between the curb and the terminal and outdoor courtyards within the new facility.

The latest technologies will also be incorporated into the new terminal and a modern Federal Inspections Service area will be built.

To further improve the passenger experience, roadway improvements will also be implemented to increase traffic flow.

Mayor Ron Nirenberg said:

“This expanded facility will accommodate current and future air service expansion to meet our community’s constantly growing demand through 2040 and beyond.

“The airport is the doorstep to our beautiful city. The paseo, as you enter, will say you’ve arrived in San Antonio. We’re putting San Antonio on the map with every step of this much-needed project. We’re building a world-class airport to give people more options domestically and internationally.”

Erik Walsh, San Antonio City Manager stated that the budget for this project will be established over the next year alongside more detailed design plans.

Construction is then scheduled to start in 2024.

Erik Walsh, City Manager, said:

“This is the most important capital project in San Antonio’s history. I’m confident in the team we’ve put together and we are ready to make this expansion a reality. A modern, vibrant airport makes travel easier for our residents, while also streamlining business travel and attracting more tourism to San Antonio. This modernisation of our airport is essential as we expand and add new air service options.”
