Well IND is a focus city for both FL and NW, and are served a decent amount by WN and US.

It does seem like a very large main terminal building for only around 38 gates. But I can't wait to use it! What an impressive upgrade from the awful terminal currently at IND.

I don't think MCO is big enough to support all that! Seems VERY ambitious. I hope the industry rebounds and somebody sets up shop at IND. The facilities look great.

I have read that this first major airport in the country to be designed and built from the ground up since 9/11, so they've created a large gathering area (Civic Plaza) for passengers to spend time with their families, eat, shop, etc. prior to going through security.

Ah, thanks Cadet. I saw the word "grill" and glossed over the gift shop part.

I love that store.  Smile

jetBlue? I know Indy has been begging jetBlue for years to come...this, I would think, will attract them.

Good question, I was thinking about that myself. Somebody out there must have some info...

To my knowledge, it hasn't been released which airlines will be in A and B and which gates they will utilize. However, by looking at the restaurants/retail locations, I think it's safe to say Southwest and AirTran will be in Concourse B and legacy carriers dominating Concourse A.

It will be interesting to see how many gates US Airways ends up with as well. They had all of Concourse D in the current terminal for several years and just let United in a few years ago, but they still have I think 6 or so gates.

DFW's Terminal D opened in July of 2005 and Terminal E at IAH was opened in 2003 I believe.

there's a TGI Friday's at the one now.

but of note ... it looks like Cinnabon is not making the move. Nor is Auntie Anne's, Chick Fil A, Hatworld, Perfumania, Back Home Indiana, or Subway.

There's probably more but that's what's off the cuff of my head.


Only *THREE* Starbucks'? Lame.

Yes, there will be ticketing islands. The current terminal already has flat screen arrival/departure monitors, so I'm sure the new terminal will as well. I don't know about the gates.

Auntie Anne's did come to mind when I saw the list...I am thinking there may be a few more names like this surface closer to opening. HatWorld and Lids are the same company.

Yes and Yes as RW said. Probably from hhgregg, another Indy company.

JetBlue will be attracted only if they can make money on the route. Fancy new terminals (and this one looks very nice indeed) don't really enter into it.
