Austin-Bergstrom International Airport in Texas, US, has launched the first phase of a new nine-gate expansion terminal inside the Barbara Jordan Terminal.
The $350m terminal and apron expansion project included setting up nine gates, construction of an outdoor terrace overlooking the airfield, as well as a new baggage claim area.
With the addition of nine new gates, the total number of gates at the airport will touch 34 and will help the airport to deal with a steadily increasing number of passengers.
Covering an area of 175,000ft², the terminal expansion project included 88,359ft² of concourse space, 52,282ft² of apron level space for baggage makeup conveyors, additional inbound baggage systems, and airline operations space.
It also involved 28,205ft² of mezzanine and platform level space, as well as 5,770ft² of outdoor east terrace.
The project also focused on expanding the paved aircraft area around the terminal to better house larger and more aircraft while boosting increased overnight aircraft parking at Austin’s airport.
