San Francisco International Airport (SFO) has resumed the opening of the next phase of Harvey Milk Terminal 1.

The airport previously postponed the opening of the terminal, which is named after California’s first openly gay elected public official, due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

As per the latest update, SFO is set to move JetBlue to a new ticket counter and will also move baggage claim locations in Harvey Milk Terminal 1 today.

This will be followed by the relocation of Southwest to a new ticket counter and the movement of baggage claim locations in Harvey Milk Terminal on Thursday 30 April.

The terminal has multiple upgraded facilities, including new gates, floor-to-ceiling windows, new retail concessions and energy-saving initiatives such as self-energising elevators, moving walkways and Go Slow escalators that cut down the use of grid electricity.

As the San Francisco Stay Safe at Home Order defined construction related to airport operations as essential, the construction crews continued to work on the Harvey Milk Terminal 1 project to ensure the next phase is ready for activation.

Meanwhile, SFO recently postponed its $1bn Terminal 3 West project due to reduced passenger numbers and flight operations caused by the Covid-19 crisis.

Last week, the airport urged all members of the public to wear face coverings in accordance with the recent order issued by the San Mateo County Public Health Office. It has placed signage notifying passengers that they are required to wear face coverings.

At present, the airport remains open for essential travel.
