The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has signed a Letter of Intent to award San Diego International Airport (SAN) with 110 million USD in funding for its T1 airfield improvements.

These improvements are part of SAN’s New T1 programme, which broke ground in December 2021.

The New T1 project includes improvements to the airfield as well as improved transportation connectivity to the airport

The 110 million USD will be available to the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority through FAA grants over a 10-year period.

The funding will support a range of airfield improvements, including redesigned taxiways and additional aircraft parking spots that will help reduce aircraft taxiing times and cut greenhouse gas emissions.

Kimberly Becker, Airport Authority President and CEO said:

The FAA’s investment helps SAN and our passengers by allowing for more efficient operations from the minute they arrive to the minute the depart. The Airport Authority team was able to demonstrate to the FAA that the airfield improvements project will provide significant enhancements and allow us to continue serving the region’s air service needs. We appreciate the support of the FAA.

SAN’s New T1 project will replace the airport’s current Terminal 1 with a modern and efficient facility that will improve the airport experience.

The first phase of the project is expected to be complete in 2025, while the entire New T1 is anticipated to be operational in late 2028.
