SAT Announces Terminal Development Program Details

San Antonio’s Director of Airports, Jesus Saenz has announced the details of San Antonio International Airport’s (SAT) 2.5 billion USD Terminal Development Program (TDP), which includes the design and construction of a third terminal.

Once built, the new terminal and associated enabling projects, such as a ground transportation centre, parking garage and terminal road realignment will enable SAT to handle growing passenger demands over the next 20 years. The city is working to deliver the new facilities by mid-2028.

SAT is reaching capacity and already has two projects underway to provide 5 new gates until the new terminal is opened
Jesus H. Saenz, Director of Airports, San Antonio Airport System said:

“This is an investment in our city’s future and our economic growth. Our ultimate goal is to elevate the passenger experience. We initiated the implementation of the Strategic Development Program which encompasses the Terminal Development Program the day City Council approved the plan.”

The Terminal Development Program is a key component of SAT’s Strategic Development Program, which was approved in November 2021. In line with the programme, San Antonio Airport System has already begun the next phase of the airfield expansion, which will extend an existing runway.

The Airport System also continues to invest in passenger enhancement projects, such as implementing smart restrooms, upgrading electronic video information displays, modernising the paging system, and expanding the security checkpoint in Terminal B. In addition, new airport concessions will open this summer including Whataburger, Beercode, and Adina’s Market to provide passengers with more eating and retail options.

Sanez added:

“We are going to be the airport of the future. We are on track to give travellers everything they need – and then some. This is going to be the airport the entire San Antonio community will be proud of.”

The details of SAT’s Terminal Development Program were announced at San Antonio’s City Council meeting on 18 May 2022. In addition, City Manager Erik Walsh appointed two new members to the Airport’s leadership team. Tim O’Krongley has been appointed the Deputy Aviation Director of Planning, Design, Construction and the New Terminal Program, while Michael Garnier has been appointed as the Chief Finance and Administration Officer for the San Antonio Airport System.
