We have preferential and common use gates. FIS gates 15-18 are all common use. Gates 1 and 3 are also currently common use but gate 1 will become preferential on 11/1. Ground boarding gate 7a is also common use.
I had an idea. Has any thought been given to moving the cargo ramp at the northwest corner of the airport to the northeast (the area closest to 87 and 880) or the southwest corner next to Signature FBO? This could clear the way for remote parking for RON or even an extension of terminal A. The other idea is a satellite terminal where the cargo ramp is now, with some kind of connector to terminal A. It could even be a commuter-style terminal for regional type jets and turboprops.
