Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in the US is set to open its Terminal 3 North Concourse early this February.

The terminal has undergone extensive modernisation under the $590m Terminal 3 upgrade project.

The North Concourse, which is the last component of the project, features ten airline gates, as well as new shops, restaurants and other customer amenities.

Flights will start arriving at the newly renovated North Concourse Terminal 3 from 3 February.

The project was financed through airport revenues, including parking, concessions and tenant fees, without using local tax.

Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego said: “This is a great day for Phoenix. We also marked the completion of a multi-year modernisation project at the airport.

“The new concourse will be home to local restaurants, stunning art, a nursing room, and increased energy efficiency standards. This is another important investment in our state’s number one economic driver.”

The terminal first opened in 1979 and was voted to be named John S McCain III Terminal 3 after long-time US Senator.

As part of this ceremony, a newly-fabricated plaque honouring the late John S McCain III was unveiled at the terminal.

By 6 February, all airlines from Terminal 2 will be relocated to Terminal 3. The renovated terminal will operate Air Canada, Alaska, Boutique Air, Contour Airlines, Delta, Frontier, Hawaiian, JetBlue, Spirit, Sun Country and United.

Terminal 2 will be closed once the renovation completes.

In January last year, Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in the US opened a new South Concourse and terminal processor.
