San Antonio International Airport has unveiled a $2.5bn programme for the design and construction of a third terminal, as well as a ground transportation centre, parking garage and road realignment.
The terminal will meet growing passenger numbers and community needs. The airport is currently creating five gates that will be used until the project is completed.
As well as these schemes, the Texas airport is planning a 3km runway extension, restroom upgrades and new restaurants and shops.
Jesus Saenz Jr, San Antonio Airport’s director of airports, said: “This is an investment in our city’s future and our economic growth.
“We are going to be the airport of the future. We are on track to give travellers everything they need – and then some.”
Work on the terminal could be completed by mid-2028.
