In the Los Angeles area, not a whole lot can be done to expand LAX
but I've seen much in print like the LA
Times sugesting they would like to see more domestic utlization of ONT
, and SNA
shifts more emphasis to international flights. In that proposal was also the idea of linking up those airports with a high-speed rail connection.
Also discussed was upgrading airports in San Bernardino and Lancaster to accommodate commercial aviaion as well and presumably putting them on the high-speed rail link. (High-speed rail links are comonplace in Europe and Asia.)
As far as whole NEW
major airports, nothing has been planned or developed since Denver. DTW
opened up the new McNamara terminal and expanded the runways in 2002. Other than that, not much is on the books.
If I were to place a bet on the US, my money might be on San Diego. Lindbergh has been at capacity for eons.
