Airports With Terminal Numbers Not In Sequence

Not sure if this is of any interest to anyone else (I've had too much time on my hands lately!), but I think it's interesting that YYZ Toronto Pearson no longer has a Terminal 2 - but kept Terminals 1 and 3. Are there any other airports that have this kind of thing?

ONT only has terminals 2 and 4, but they're numbered that way because the space in between those terminals can theoretically be used to construct terminals 1 and 3, should the need ever occur.

Ironically, it seems the opposite will happen. There's strong consideration to consolidate ALL current ops at ONT into one terminal.

O'Hare has terminals 1, 2, 3, and 5. Terminal 4 was at the bottom of a parking garage and used for international flights while T5 was being built. It wasn't used for long, less than a decade I think.

RSW has concourse's B,C,D. The reasoning behind it, is due to expansion if needed. The original plans call for concourse's A and E to be added on the sides of the current building if traffic demands need it. Could explain why they haven't renamed the terminals at YYZ, just a guess though.

CDG used to. There was T1, T3 and T9 (the word for 9, "neuf", can also mean "new" in French). Fortunately they recently renamed T9 to be T3.

It may happen at LHR, when T1 and T2 become Heathrow East. That would leave East, T3, T4 and T5.

Quoting Kevinasaurus (Thread starter):

The likely reason for this is that the GTAA didn't want to spend the $$$ re-signing T3 for no real reason.

Quoting San747 (Reply 1):
to consolidate ALL current ops at ONT into one terminal.

I think this is the plan for YYZ. Connect T1 to T3, likely refurbishing T3 to look like T1 and it will be single terminal ops.

Quoting Kevinasaurus (Thread starter):

ORD. While it does have T1, T2, T3. They are missing letters A, D, I, and J for concourses.

Most airports with that many concourses tend to skip "I" because of the potential for confusion with the number "1".

MIA will be similar, in a way, starting with Concourse D

BOS has A, B, C, and E. D became part of C and E was supposed to become D, however so far nothing has come of it. B is divided into North and South, or "AA side" and "US side", which makes me wonder if in the future that will become a new terminal. Interestingly enough, BOS doesn't have any concourses.

Moscow's Sheremetyevo is opening it's doors to the brand new Terminal D next month, simultaneously switching the airport sequence from numbers to letters. When the shift occurs, SVO will have a Terminal C, D, E, and F. But the construction on A, B, and G hasn't even been fully planned, although potential projects exist.

RDU used to have Terminal A and Terminal C. (old Terminal B was the original end of the terminal, got swallowed by A) Then Terminal C was build for the AA hub.

Now with the construction on the Terminals, they have all been renamed Terminal 1 (former A and B) and Terminal 2 (former C)

Phoenix has terminals 2, 3, and 4.

Terminal 1 was torn down once 4 was completed.

MKE is not nearly big enough for multiple terminals, but they've had concourses C through E for as long as I can remember. I can't explain the gate numbering either.

ABQ currently only has two main concourses (A and B) and a single-gate commuter concourse (E). I have heard that the former Concourse C was used by TWA, which closed after TWA was bought out by AA.

Also, Concourse D, another single-gate commuter concourse, I belive was used by Mesa/Air Midwest.

Sarasota-Bradenton Int'l (SRQ) only has a Terminal B. 10 years ago, they also had a Terminal E (I believe) located to the right of the ticket counter used for commuter planes mainly AA from MIA.

SJC used to have Terminal A and Terminal C, but they're replacing C with Terminal B, so I guess that doesn't count anymore.

Heathrow East will now be called T1, so LHR will have T1, T3, T4, T5 with the potential of T6 if the 3rd runway ever gets built...

So by 2019 when T1 is supposed to go there will be T2,3,4 and 5

JFK technically no longer has a terminal 6. So its 1-5 and then 7 & 8.

Terminal 1 still exists; it's the old main terminal. It can still theoretically be used until it's torn down (which, as I understand, is soon.  Sad ) The old DL terminal used to be terminal 2.

I don't see them putting a new T1 just west of T2 right away for a few reasons:

1) The international terminal, employee parking lot, and mail house are in the way.
2) The fuel farm, and its underground holding tanks are there.

Terminal 3 can fit between 2 and 4. The spots are already numbered and ready to go. I used to tow planes onto 308 all of the time.

Terminal 5 can be built right away on the empty lot just east of T4.
