The San Diego International Airport 2008 Master Plan documents the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority’s planning process for the 661 acres that comprise San Diego International Airport. Adopted by the Authority Board May 1, 2008, the 2008 Airport Master Plan provides guidance for development of the airport to meet continued passenger, cargo and operations growth at San Diego International Airport.
An airport master plan represents the approved actions to be accomplished for phased development of the airport. Master plans address the airfield, terminal, landside access improvements, modernization, and expansion of existing airports and establish the premise for planning for a new airport.
The five primary steps to the Airport Master Plan process are:
January-June 2004: Presentation of forecast for operations, passengers and cargo
