New T1 Overview
ENVISIONING A NEW TERMINAL 1
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 New T1 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 comprehensive Final Environmental Impact Report (EIR) for the New T1 that was certified by the Authority Board on
January 9, 2020. In the months following, the Airport Authority cautiously
planned for the New T1 during the worldwide pandemic. On September 3, 2020, the
Authority Board approved the selection of design-build firm Turner-Flatiron for
the redevelopment of Terminal 1 and surrounding roadways. The Airport Authority is continuing progress with the New T1.
