Airport Development Plan Overview


When Terminal 1 opened in 1967, it served 2.5 million passengers in its first year. In 2018, the same facility served more than 12 million. For roughly half of our passengers, Terminal 1 provides their first impression of San Diego. Admittedly, it’s not a very good one.

The Airport Development Plan (ADP) envisions the replacement of Terminal 1 with a more modern facility and other improvements that enhance the airport experience for everyone.

The Airport Authority prepared a Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the ADP in summer 2018. Since then, we’ve been working with regional stakeholders to refine the ADP. The Final EIR is now available here. The Airport Authority Board is scheduled to consider certifying the Final EIR on January 9, 2020.
