Terminal Overhauls

Tue Mar 15, 2005 12:31 am

What airports are under going a major overhaul. Here at MSP things are starting to change. I heard that the observation deck might be turned into a fitness center. I hope that this isn't the case as people can watch the E, D, C, B, A gates. Other changes are taking place in Northstar crossing. Many new restaurants will be added.

For DL we just opened the new BOS terminal and ATL and JFK are in work. I think AA is also redoing their JFK terminal. Atl is also constructing an new international terminal. Not much can be seen yet of it though. They are still working below grade level.

Asmtrd,

I heard that airlines not affiliated in some way with NW (Sky Team?) will be moving to the HHH Terminal. I've looked at the expansion plans for both terminals on the airport's website. Pretty impressive.

At PHX Sky Harbor, a new south concourse for WN opened last week.

At STL-

A new Chili's is opening up soon in the A Concourse. A Brooks Brothers is apparently in the works but last time I was there didn't see when/where they are building it.

A third runway is expected to be completed......well......yeah

In other news....a new Starbucks has opened at the end of the jetbridge for the C2 gate....and work on the new JetBlue terminal is progressing well.

AA at JFK is coming along. The satellite is inform so it is inside work for now and outside work on the bigger building. B6 has their hangar pretty much done at JFK (but that isn't considered a terminal but it is B6 updates at JFK and not much at T5 yet. I guess it is still planning and setting up.

LHR having a little bit of work done.
New Terminal 5

Terminal 3 extension for A380's.

Taxiways have been re-newed.

Once BA moves to T5 most of T2 operations will move to T4 so T2 can be demolished, not sure of what will be built there though?

The curent control tower will become an observation point.

MIA is also. They are building a super councourse for AA and partners. But it is difficult task because they are building it where AA flys now. Also new councourse J is being built and should be up and running in maybe a year.

The terminal does not actually open for business to the public until Wednesday, March 16, so it's not quite open just yet.

I guess it depends on where in ATL you are looking. I just flew AirTran this past week to LAS and Terminal C at ATL is disgusting. That carpet has probably been there since 1975.

SEA has been under construction with the building of A terminal for a few years now...every time I think it's got to be done soon, there's more plywood hallways put up.

For a stretch during the last 12 months or so, it was to the point where I'd fly in and out every 3 days, and each time I went through the airport, the temporary plywood hallways (to hide you from the construction) would have changed shape and direction. It was VERY disorienting since I am quite used to the airport at this point.

All they needed was the pinata...

Terminal 1 at YYZ is undergoing redevelopment I guess you could say. They've torn down the original T1 and have opened a new T1 with another concourse ready to be opened in the coming years.

Quoting WILLIAM (Reply 15):

Not exactly sure, but it is a bit ancient, I actually work in T2 and the ramp is very limited for parking of equipment (as is most of the airport) and some of the stands are very tight.

T2 only has 14 bridged stands, although there are 2 or 3 stands on the europier at T1 that can be used for T2 handlers.

T2 was the first terminal built, then everything else was built around it. so maybe they will spread it out a bit.

For some reason I thought DFW and/or AA were refurbishing terminals A & C at Dallas/Fort Worth. Does anyone have any information to back this up or I am just dreaming?

Although already mentioned, not much was said. DTW is undergoing a complete renovation. After the airports 4th parallel runway was built allowing for 4 simultaneous landings, the McNamara terminal was build. Now, the McNamara terminal concourses B and C are being expanded, and the smith and Davey terminals are going to be demolished while a new North Terminal will be built. Along with that, the Berry Terminal will also be demolished. By completion, DTW will be one of the most efficient and state of the art airports in the world. I have a feeling that DTW will grow very fast. I am not biased, just my honest opinion.

Here at BWI, it can best said as"But Wait, There's More!.By the summer, the kingdom of WN will have its spanking new concourse A up and running. Plus, food and beverage outlets such as Outback, Bill Bateman's and a whole host of epicurean delights will be opening. The upper roadway is expanding and we, [img] http://domains-unlimited.com/aviation/imageprod/fl504.jpg[/img] are expanding and rennovating our ticketing area! http://www.bwiairport.com/about_bwi/expansion_plans/.

What about all the orange cones all over the A concourse at DTW. Looks like the roads in Michigan aren't the only surface that has potholes.

Goomba:

The carpeting in Concourse C at ATL couldn't have been there since 1975. The new terminal comples opened in the early 1980s.

ORD is installing new canopies on the fronts of Terminals 2 and 3. They will extend over the first 2 lanes of traffic.

The front walls of the terminals are being moved about 20 feet to meet the sidewalks. The baggage claims are being renovated, and the ticketing areas will then be remodeled and reconfigured.

To be exact, ATL generation III opened on 23 Sept., 1980. Basically, the gaudy bad taste 70's ran over into 1980 and 1981. The big hair 80's really didn't get under way till '82. So, your colors and design still had diarrhea orange and brown as prominent colors. Concourse C and D at ATL have taken a lot of use and abuse and therefore, their facelifts were welcome. Also, new HVAC systems were installed. And, with smoking lounges throughout these terminals, the smoke also roaches out carpet, and other interior fixtures.  airplane 


Notice that these threads look like the same color scheme as the outside of ATL on the ramp!

Is there really a need, or is it possible for 4 simultaneous landings at DTW? The runways are somewhat staggered. At PHX, we have three parallel runways and there's never more than two simuls at a time. It's quite a site when the planes are lined up just right. The south runway (29L/7R) is too close to 29R/7L to allow for a triple. Sorry for the digression from the topic.

The MFR terminal building will be replaced by 2009 with a new state of the art building with 4 or 5 jetways. A new taller control tower will also be built. There is also discussion of extending runway 14-32 from 8800 to 10,000 feet and converting runway 9-27 from a crosswind into a parallel runway.

JAX is in the slow process of being completely redone. The new parking garage already opened some years ago, and the main terminal building with ticketing/check-in and baggage claims has also already been expanded significantly. Currently, the airside is in the process of being redone, from a 3-way concourse system to a single large concourse. Unfortunately I don't know any data about it, as JAX' website is only an uninformative PoS.
HAM only recently opened the pier extension, adding 6 jetways and 14 bus stations to the terminal. The new Terminal 2 is also close to being finished, and will be officially opened early this summer. Not to forget is the new parking rotunda, offering an additional 2200 parking spots, with even more on the way. And not to forget, construction on the rail link are also well underway for a completion in 2007. Other projects include and airport hotel and a shopping plaza.

Thanks for the correction. I was sort of being over exaggerative to the point. I didn't really mean 1975. What I meant was that the carpet looks 30 years old.
